It all started with a dream. The dream of creating a world-class Bordeaux style fine wine in China. Ao Yun is a dream come true, an incredible adventure that began in 2008 with a four-year quest, through lands never explored for viticulture. A search for the perfect place to make a great red wine. LVMH targeted an atypical terroir near the city of Shangri-La, in the foothills of the Himalayas, in northern Yunnan province.
The Chinese winery Ao Yun in the Yunnan province is regarded as one of the top wines in China and shows that great wines are made in this relatively new wine country. The vineyards of Ao Yun lie at the foot of the sacred mountain Meili at a dizzying height of 2,100-2,600 meters.
Spread over four villages, the vineyard is maintained entirely by hand by the local farmers, who are trained in viticulture, while staying true to the agro-ecological traditions that this country has known for hundreds of years. Located at an altitude of between 2,200 and 2,600 meters above sea level, the estate is named after the beautiful clouds that gather over the permanently snow-capped mountain ranges: in Mandarin, "Ao Yun" means "to fly above the clouds".
