Staying in a fairy-tale-styled chateau and sipping wine in mild evening breezes could be high on the dream list for many. Now you can partly realize it when visiting Yantai. Taking full benefit of being one of China’s fruit baskets—major source of fruit supplies like applies and grapes for Northeastern China—Yantai has the natural resources to foster a local winery industry.
On top of an international wine festival usually taking place in June, the many chateaux you can stay and taste wines in are a proof that the locals are doing a grand job. Many of these chateaux are also luxury hotels at very reasonable prices: most of the rooms are listed for under 30 dollars per night, making a wine tasting excursion worth exploring.
