Above ground fermentation cellars to produce premium sparkling wine.
Construction is underway for Möet Hennessy’s first winery in China, located in Ningxia, a remote location in the central north region that’s among the country’s top wine-growing areas. It’s a year-long project that will soon come to fruition in June 2013. And when complete, the Chandon Ningxia Winery stands as a 6,300 square metre complex built to house fermentation cellars, technical tasting rooms and a visitor centre all under one roof.

A historic producer of sparkling wines.
Cantina Ferrari is Italy’s most famous producer of sparkling wine made in the classical method. The winery is located in the Northern Italian region of Trentino. It was Giulio Ferrari’s idea and vision to make an Italian sparkling wine that could compete with French Champagne. He studied enology at the prestigious School of Viticulture in Montepellier, France and was the first to plant Chardonnay in Trentino.
