Gansu Qilian Winery Co., Ltd.China Company Profile
Gansu Qilian Winery Co., Ltd. is a state-controlled enterprise founded in February 2002, it specializes in the production and sales of wine. “Qilian Legend” brand delivers 110 plus varieties that come in five categories: white icewines, red icewines, dry red wine, dry white wine and brandy.

Qilian Manor, the company’s 12,000-mu grape planting base, is located in Gaotai County, Zhangye City of Gansu Province in the middle of the Hexi Corridor. It shares a latitude zone with Bordeaux in France and Napa Valley in California, and borders Badain Jaran Desert to the north and Qilian Mountains to the south. The local climate features dry air that inhibits the reproduction of pests and the spread of diseases, high atmospheric transparency that is beneficial to photosynthesis, and drastic differences between day and night temperatures. Its sandy soil is ideal for the rooting and growth of grape vines. All these favorable conditions make it a “golden planting area” recognized across the industry. In addition, Qilian Manor borders the northern slope of the Qilian Mountains. The local microclimate, which is rare in China, makes it an ideal grape-growing area for iced wine.
Qilian Manor, where forestry workers undertake collective planting and management, was built in the 1990s by the Bailongjiang Forestry Administration of Gansu Province to align its work with the National Natural Forest Protection Project. It strictly limits the output of grapes to guarantee the full growth of each grape; farmyard manure purchased from farming households nearby are “organically” applied to the soil after tests and fermentation; it is irrigated with mineral-rich snow water, purified by deep soil strata, from the Qilian Mountains; random collection by entities rather than farming households has ensured that raw materials at the source are real stuff; therefore, the wine grapes planted by Qilian Manor were certified as an “Organic Product” by the China Quality Certification Center.
Internationally advanced brewing technology and equipment were introduced into the company after its establishment, which now has 2 specialized bottling lines and an underground wine cellar in the neighborhood of 6,000m2. It has an annual production capacity of 10,000 tons and a storage capacity of 20,000 tons. Its wine production was certified by the GB/T 19001-2016/ISO 9001:2015 quality management system, the GB/T19630.2-2011 organic product processing system, and the HACCP system.
