Bodega Langes 10th anniversary edition 1.5 L
Price: RMB 16,800 (USD 2,606)
Bodega Langes 10th anniversary edition (1.5L) is a costly and sparkly wine.
The 10th anniversary edition, made from 100% Syrah comes with a label decorated with Swarovski crystals since both are owned by the Austrian crystal maker Swarovski.
With a USD 36 million investment from the Swarovski family, the winery Bodega Langes was established in 1999 in China when domestic wine production was still in its early stage. The family chose Changli, Hebei as the production base, which is known as the “Hometown of Chinese Wine and Grapes”.
The 2800-acres vineyard has plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The winery then spent USD 3 million in advanced wine production equipment from France, Germany and Italy.
The winery also says it uses organic farming methods, limiting use of herbicides and fungicides.
In 2018, the Swarovski family sold its ownership to Hongxing Steel Company for RMB 280 million (USD 44 million).
The family still owns Bodega Norton in Argentina.
