 Completing the National Mission

Chateau Dalat - conquering APEC 2017

Viet Nam’s premium wine, Chateau Dalat Signature Shiraz, was officially chosen to be served to leaders and heads of State at the 2017 APEC Economic Leaders’ Week.  

In order to be awarded the certificate of recognition as APEC’s official product, Chateau Dalat needed verification that it was made from special wine grapes grown in Ninh Son, Ninh Thuan Province, with the help of advanced agriculture technology.

The process of making the wine involves painstaking research and development on gathering and cultivating the right variety of grapes in accordance with European farming standards. After the best grapes are collected and extracted, they go through fermentation and refinement under an Italian wine-making process. The wine is then preserved under the strict supervision of world-renowned wine experts to achieve the best taste and quality.

Chateau Dalat had to pass through a variety of strict quality inspection procedures by the agencies before it was chosen as the official drink of leaders at the APEC summit.

Many samples were sent for testing by the Department of Health to its director, who had personally come to pick up the sample in Ladora Winery. After that, all documents and product samples were transferred to the Ministry of Health for reviewing. Before the beginning of the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week, the President himself as well as the representatives of all 21 APEC member economies had tasted the wine to take the final call.      

Chateau Dalat - The National Mission

After passing strict quality inspections, Chateau Dalat Signature has received quality authentication from international experts, representatives of member economies and observers. This is an honour not only for the Chateau Dalat brand or Ladora Winery, but also for Viet Nam’s wine-making industry.

The success of APEC 2017 left a lasting impression on the heart of more than 11,000 delegates, businesses and international journalists. Chateau Dalat proudly contributed to the national mission of playing host to senior leaders and delegates of APEC member economies. It is only worthy to call it “The Leader Wine”.
