In the first-ever U.S. tasting, three esteemed bottlings of Chinese varietal wines received resounding approval from wine masters in Las Vegas. The wines are all produced in the Helan Shan Mountain Appellation in Ningxia, China. Known as the Napa Valley of China, Ningxia is fast becoming an internationally recognized source of fine grape-based wines.

China Fine Wines, LLC (U.S. offices in Dallas), along with broker M*E Fine Wines, debuted the 2011 vintage of Dragon’s Hollow Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon on July 30th at the Palazzo Las Vegas Hotel to an exclusive invitation-only audience. They also showed Jai Bei Lan and Silver Heights vintages for the first time in the U.S.

Brand-new 2011 bottlings of Dragon’s Hollow have been much anticipated in the United States. Dragon’s Hollow was the first premium wine from China sold in the U.S. It had been available in select American markets for a few years but sold out due to steady demand.

Jia Bei Lan burst onto the international wine scene when its 2009 Cabernet blend won the Red Bordeaux International Trophy at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards. It was the first time a Chinese wine ever took Decanter magazine’s top honors.

High-quality Silver Heights wines are produced in very limited quantities and have become one of China’s most sought-after varietals.

‘Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic!’
Among the tasters at the Las Vegas event were two Master Sommeliers and a Master of Wine, all of whom had praise for the wines. Award-winning author Jeannie Cho Lee MW, the first Asian Master of Wine in the world, enjoyed the Dragon’s Hollow Chardonnay and was impressed with all three red wines, later sharing her praise with her Twitter followers. The first three words from Robert Smith MS when he tasted the Dragon’s Hollow wines were,“Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic!” Ira Harmon MS was equally impressed and noted the vast improvement over Chinese wines he had tasted previously.

The Wines the World Is Curious About
At the event, David Henderson, owner of China Fine Wines and Dragon’s Hollow, gave guests a guided tour through China’s Ningxia region that included an in-depth look at “the wines everyone in the wine world is suddenly curious about,” he explained. “It’s exciting to realize how far the wines have come in such a short time after starting in what was basically virgin area,” he said. Henderson, often called the “Godfather of Wine” in China, told of planting the first vineyards there in 1997, likening it to the first plantings of Robert Mondavi in Napa, Calif., in the Sixties. Today there are more than 50 wineries in Ningxia.

Paul R. Ellis of M*E Fine Wines is excited about the prospects for Chinese wines in the U.S. and worldwide: “From the brand-new packaging to the additional age of the vines, more experience of the winemakers, and excellent soil and climate conditions, it’s obvious that the wines will continue improving.”

Ellis’ partner Joe Muscaglione is equally optimistic. On whether there is a place for Chinese wine in the international scene, he says: “Why not China? China is a huge country with a long history of winemaking. Not that long ago, there were no wines from Argentina, South Africa or Australia in most restaurants outside of their own country.”

When asked if the wines are being sold primarily to Chinese restaurants, Muscaglione rejected the idea of limiting their distribution: “Imagine if only Argentinian restaurants carried Argentinian wines? Wines that were once ‘oddities’ now have widespread availability and certainly not just in restaurants connected to their nationalities.”

Dragon’s Hollow wines are available in fine restaurants in Las Vegas, New York City and Washington, D.C. as well as in New Jersey, Connecticut, Texas, Florida and California.
