Lanthanide Wines
Lanthanide Wine Group was formed with the goal of advancing the concept of terroir in the new world. In chemistry, the Lanthanides were long known as rare earth metals; however, it turns out that they were never particularly rare, the difficulty lies in their identification and manner of extraction. We hold that there are untold numbers of sites in the golden California with extraordinary potential, capable of rivaling the best in the world, and yet, the difficulty lies in the identification and expression of such terroirs.

Shunyi Cellars
According to legend, Shun (舜) was one of the greatest emperors of ancient China. Before Shun became an emperor, he was a farmer growing rice in George Zhang’s hometown Jinan, the capital city of Shandong Province. Today, the Chinese people remember and celebrate Shun as a role model for humility, kindness, and integrity. Yi (裔) translates to “descendant.” The residents of Jinan, including George Zhang, are proud to be called descendants of Shun or ShunYi (舜裔).

ShunYi Cellars is established in the Summer of 2019. The team at ShunYi Cellars is dedicated to making wines that showcase the unique terroir of different viticulture regions. We believe wine not only connects people but also bridges experiences, cultures, and values.
