The Puchang story began in 2008 when Mr. K.K. Cheung, an entrepreneur from Hong Kong, decided to dedicate his passion and effort in producing the best wines from Xinjiang, aiming to change the world’s perception on winemaking in China.
Today, it is extremely rewarding to see Puchang wines obtaining awards at a number of international wine competitions whilst Xinjiang’s viticulture has gained much recognition by international wine experts.
At Puchang, high quality wines are produced on the basis of our deepest respect to Mother Nature and local traditions, as well as our passion for green living.
We work closely with local farmers, learning their wisdom and sharing with them new knowledge on organic farming and winemaking to ensure sustainable development of the entire wine region. We work through ecological processes, using only organic, non-chemical substances to farm local grape varieties and produce premium quality wines with low level of sulphites.
