The drama will become the first TV series produced by Ningxia to air on CCTV. It will also be the first Chinese television drama with a theme centered on the entire grape wine industry, filling a historical gap in Chinese grape wine-themed audiovisual works and further enhancing the brand awareness of grape wine produced in the eastern foothills of the Helan Mountains.
