Very much an oasis in the middle of the desert, Puchang – located in Turpan Valley, China’s Xinjiang province - now comprises approximately 100 hectares of vineyards which produce up to 130,000 bottles each year. Puchang was first established in 1975. In 2008, Hong Kong business man, Mr. K.K. Cheung purchased the estate, giving it a new direction as one of the first organic wine producers in China.

Puchang focuses on organic viticulture and winemaking with unwavering dedication and care under quality management. It also works with distinctive local grapes to present the taste of Xinjiang terroir. Thanks to the extreme desert climate, this land is almost entirely free of pests. Puchang is certified by ECOCERT as being organically maintained, which is an indication of its fine standard at the international level.

Made with Beichun grapes. Beichun is a medium-bodied wine with a garnet red colour. Strong wild berries on the nose with similar flavors on the palate with spicy notes of cinnamon. Beichin has a rounded and velvety structure. Overall, full and fruity, intermingled with refined spicy sensation.
Ready to drink now to 15 years

Beichun is a hybrid between wild grapes from Jilin Province in China and muscat from Xinjiang. Unique variety with high sugar levels only grown in Xinjiang. A full-bodied yet elegant wine in most vintages, with strong scent of strawberry and floral note, particularly rose. The wine is exquisitely sumptuous aroma with strong tannins.
