BEIJING, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- An exciting and unusual experience for students, The China Guide ( ) is taking guests inside a working Beijing winery. As part of their academic tours, The China Guide provides opportunities for students or business travelers to gain first-hand insight into local industry. Their Wine Production Tour will provide guests the chance to learn from company experts, topped off by a wine sampling of local favorites.

A tour of the production facilities and the winery museum is followed by a wine tasting, making up the three components of the tour. From a historical standpoint there is much to see during the tour as the facility has been in operation for more than 40 years. The winery museum has excellent historical photographs and students can contrast the operations to the current facilities.

"We are always looking for new and interesting opportunities for our academic tours. The Wine Production Tour is special because most people don't even consider wine when they think of China's local industries," says Frank Yang, The China Guide's Sales and Marketing Executive. "We can introduce our student and business guests to an unexpected Beijing company who will provide insights and information from company experts. Concluding the company visit with a wine tasting is also a great way to relax and unwind after an academic tour, it makes for the perfect afternoon."

The China Guide's winery tour is a half day duration that can easily be combined with other Beijing sights or company visits. Popular academic group itineraries also include Beijing's historical sights, Chinese cooking class, Mandarin lessons and business lectures from local Chinese professionals. The China Guide will arrange tours complete with transportation, local lunch and an English speaking professional guide. Academic tours can range from half day to multi-day itineraries that include multiple city destinations. The China Guide works directly with universities and student groups to develop academic China tours that enhance classroom themes.

The Wine Production Tour can also be arranged for interested travelers or other groups.
