Moser has Chinese estate named after him

One of China’s leading estates, Changyu, has named its new Ningxia-based winery after its consultant, Austrian winemaker Laurenz (Lenz) Moser.

changyu-wine-estate-chinaThe new Chateau Changyu Moser XV winery (above, Moser is the 15th generation of his family involved in winemaking) cost €70 million to build and boasts an 800 barrel cellar, state of the art bottling lines and a museum charting Changyu’s progress since its founding in the 19th century.

Although the new winery was only formally completed and unveiled a little earlier this month, the estate’s wines have already found a place on shelves around the world, including at Berry Bros & Rudd, which stocks the Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend and three icewines from its sister winery in Liaoning.

Changyu is the oldest wine estate in China, founded in 1892, when it quickly secured the help of Austrian viticulturist August Wilhelm Freiherr von Babo.

Moser is therefore the second Austrian to be closely linked to the chateau and has imported its wines into Austria through TxB International.

In return, Changyu imports his Grüner Veltliners and his “Singing” Grüner Veltliner (dedicated to his daughter Sophie who was also at the opening ceremony) is one of the leading Austrian wines in China.
