"Yantai is the birthplace of China's wine industry, as well as a traditional and advantageous area for producing wine. Over the past decades, Yantai's grape and wine industry have been at the forefront of the country, and the wine industry has grown into one of the city's pillar industries. Yantai is home to more than 200 wine enterprises and 60 renowned chateaus, including Changyu Group, China's oldest and largest wine maker. The wine from Yantai has received approval from consumers around the globe," said Ma Chunliang, an official with the State Administration for Market Regulation.
With its high-quality products, Yantai's wine regions achieved an output value of 10.23 billion yuan ($1.51 billion) in 2021, topping other production regions across the nation.
