Ningxia, a region situated between Gansu Province and Inner Mongolia, is gaining international recognition as China’s premier wine region. With ideal natural conditions for cultivation and the use of the chateau classification system from France, Ningxia is often dubbed as China’s answer to Bordeaux. The region is also known for its famous produce, such as the pearl rice, fish, melons, and wolfberry, thanks to the protection from the Helan Mountains and the irrigation from the Yellow River. The region is home to many Hui people, a Chinese Muslim ethnic group, and their traditions can be seen in the local cuisine, architecture, and festivals.
