He likes a glass of red - Chinese Vice-President Xi Jinping makes a toast …
Moët Hennessy, the wine and spirits arm of the French luxury group LVMH, will start producing a high-quality red wine in China in four to five years. The wine will be made in an area sometimes known as Shangri-La because it features in James Hilton’s book Lost Horizon.
The project, on a 30-hectare plot of land at 2,400 metres altitude, will be a joint venture between LVMH and Chinese vintner VATS and will be known as Moët Hennessy Shangri-La (Deqin) Winery.
It will "allow us to offer a high-quality red wine to Chinese consumers in four to five years," a statement quoted Moët Hennessy president Christophe Navarre as saying.
