The vineyard, in Tibet’s Cai Na Xiang in Lhasa, rests 3,563 metres above sea-level and grows Vidal, Muscat and Bei Bing Hong grape varieties across 67 Hectares.

In achieving its place in the Guinness Book of Records, the ‘Pure Land & Super-High Altitude Vineyard’ out-heighted the Altura Maxima vineyard in Salta Province, Argentina, commonly regarded up to now as being the world’s highest vineyard but only standing 3,111 metres tall.
