The Jingya Grape is a hybrid of European and American grapes. This hybrid grape looks nice and weighs heavy, and one cluster of grapes could weigh 400-500 grams. The grape is dark purple and big when they become ripe. The Seedless Red Grape was introduced from Changli of Hebei province and is a kind of fresh and light grape. It does not have the phenomenon of cracking when it becomes ripe. The August Grape has a rose smell when it is ripe. In addition, there are also mid-ripe kinds such as the Pink Yadu Sweetly, Victoria and Jingyu grapes, as well as late-ripe varieties such as Wanhong, Qiuhong and Black Rose.

Main attractions of the vineyard include: the Grape corridor, the petite fruit orchard, the wine castle, the lovers' paradise, the miniature garden, the fruit-picking garden and the water-borne vineyard.

Visitors can not only taste grapes of top quality, but also visit the farmers' vineyards in adjacent areas, have fun picking grapes and enjoy home dishes at the farmers' homes.
