An international wine expo was held on Tuesday in Yinchuan, capital of Ningxia, attracting tourists, investors, government officials and also representatives from the French embassy in China.

LV FENGYAN China International Wine Culture and Tourism Expo "I think most of them are not here just to taste the wine. There are also opportunities for their countries."

Vineyards here use some of the best equipment and methods in the wine industry. The yield is also rising. The expo has attracted some of the best manufactures in the world.

HUANG JIANGE Sales Manager, Fargo Services (Shanghai) Co., Ltd "Ningxia has the largest contiguous vineyard planting area in China, and many of them have adopted standardized planting. This is a grape harvester imported from France. Machines like this can increase production levels in Ningxia vineyards."

Vineyards are also paying attention to establishing brands. High-end brands, for example, have established an online tracking system that allows consumers to trace every single bottle of wine to the vineyard it comes from.
