Chateau Dynasty features a Louvre-style glass pyramid
China’s premier winemaker Dynasty Fine Wines Group celebrated its 30th anniversary with the spectacular grand opening of a classical European-style wine chateau in Tianjin last month.
Reminiscent of France’s Palace of Versailles, complete with spires, battlements and marble statues paying tribute to Dionysus, the Greek God of Wine, Chateau Dynasty is the largest wine chateau in Asia covering an area of about 11,000 square metres and promises to become a major tourist attraction in Tianjin.
A spectacular glass-and-metal pyramid at the entrance replicates the iconic monument outside The Louvre in Paris.
Breathtaking interior décor from the days of Marie Antoinette incorporates Regency furnishing and eclectic antiques ranging from historic tapestries and medieval suits of armour to an armchair originally owned by the 16th century French author Michel de Montaigne.
Grand exhibition halls showcase the world’s top vintages including priceless Rémy Martin cognacs.
