"A Date with China" 2022 international media tour visited Chateau Zhihui Yuanshi vineyard in Yinchuan, Northwest China's Ningxia Hui autonomous region, on June 25, 2022.
The vineyard is a core grape producing area at the eastern foot of the Helan Mountains.
What impressed the media the most was how an abandoned sandstone mining area was turned into the vineyard in just six years.
Zein Alabdin Ali, a vlogger from Syria, said he has been in China for a long time, but never visited such an exquisite winery. He loved the dry red wine after a tasting session.
