Dragon Seal Wines Company traces its roots back to 1910 with the establishment of the Shangyi Winery in Beijing by French missionaries. During the 1950s, the winery was nationalized and renamed Beijing Winery.
In 1987, Dragon Seal Wines Company was formed as part of a collaborative effort with Pernod Ricard of France. Upon the recommendations of a team of French viticulturists, new vineyards were established in Huailai County, Hebei Province, with cuttings imported from the Bordeaux and Burgundy regions of France. At the same time, stainless steel tanks, pressing machines, pipes, pumps and filters were also imported. In 2001, Dragon Seal Wines Company became a wholly, state-owned enterprise under the control of Beijing First Light Industry Corporation.
Today, production at Dragon Seal Wines Company is supervised by oenologist Jérôme Sabaté, a third generation winemaker from France, along with two Chinese oenologists both of whom trained in France.

My trip to the east is over and I have a lot of memories from it. My week in Melbourne was extremely memorable for many reasons: the great people, The Melbourne Cup (Australian version of the Kentucky Derby) and the Yarra Valley.
