The "Tibet Autonomous Region" with its capital Lhasa has been an administrative unit of the People's Republic of China on the territory of historic, formerly independent Tibet since 1965. It is located in the southwest of China and borders Nepal, India and Myanmar to the south. In the mid-18th century, knowledge of viticulture and winemaking was brought to this Asian highland by Catholic nuns and priests. These were then passed on from generation to generation within the Catholic minority. The retired couple Hua and Lu Sheng also benefited from this, planting vines for the first time in 2012 in the Tsalna community on the outskirts of Lhasa on the Cai Na Xiang plateau at 3,563 metres above sea level.
