The family-owned Grace Vineyard is located in Taigu, 40km south of Taiyuan, the capital city of China's Shanxi Province. Taigu has a continental climate with distinct seasonal variations. The clean air combined with the Bordeaux-like free-draining sandy soils provide ideal conditions for quality wine grape cultivation.
Chun-Keung Chan founded Grace Vineyard in 1997, aided by renowned Bordeaux oenologist Denis Boubals. Chan's vision is to build the estate into a family legacy.
In 2002, he passed the day-to-day running of the estate to his daughter, Judy Chan. Under her leadership, the winery has won international recognition – including from leading wine critics such as Jancis Robinson MW and James Halliday, as well as magazines such as Decanter and Wine Spectator. The winery has also expanded its market beyond Hong Kong and China, to Japan, Singapore, Great Britain, Belgium and the Netherlands.
