This is a boutique winery with beautiful note symbols. The winery is painted white with a string of notes on the wall. Under the Helan Mountain, the vines grow up happily with the music playing in the vineyard. The founder Geqi Wang is quiet and not quite social, so the operation of the winery is not like others, but it has its own unique operating mode.
Domaine Monluxe recruited different Co-owners, who contracts with the winery and has their own part of vineyard and wine production. As Co-owners of Domaine Monluxe, they can design their own labels, visit the winery anytime as they wish, store the wine in the cellar, know the vineyard and winery process etc. Domaine Monluxe conducts “the Grand Co-owners Meeting” once a year, inviting all the co-owners for discussion and party. It is usually held in Summer.
The wine consultant for Domaine Monluxe is Mrs Shuzhen, Zhou- widely recognized as one of the best winemakers in China. Besides Domaine Monluxe, she participated in many other wine projects in wineries such as Legacy Peak Estate, Jade Winery, Kanaan Winery etc. “The quality of the wine never stops. There is no best but only better wine” is the persistence of her whole life. We kindly call her as “Zhou gong”. She does all these for a final bottle of touching wine by pursing the improvement of quality, without twisting or compromising the initial mind because of limited time, doing only what she confirmed is right, focusing on the details and chasing perfection and excellence. Her idea is similar to Phillipe Melka- the most famous wine consultant in Napa Valley- pursuing the natural flavors from the grapes. She emphasize “nature“ repeatedly.
The winemaker of Domaine Monluxe is Junkai, Tao, who started his career in a food manufacturing company in Japan. After returning to China, he stepped into wine industry and began his work in Domaine Monluxe. As a vegetarian, he advocates the harmony between nature and winery. Everyday, the music plays in the vineyard on schedule, and the music changes according to different seasons. The animals in the vineyard are so lovely, and the staffs are always friendly.
