The end of the wine and liquor monopoly in Taiwan is sadly also the end of Taiwan very own fine wine. The glorious day of sustainable winery operation is no longer feasible and 921 earthquake is just about the last straw that breaks the camel back. the winery never did rebuilt after the disaster.

This place used to have tours of the winery, highly educational and highly emerssed into the variation of traditional ShaoXing Rice wine vs Grape based Merlot's or Chardonnays. Puli Brewery was already on the decline for several years until the 921 earthquake finally had it in for the brewery. Today, it is little more than a cheap tourists trap that... More

We were here enroute to Nantou and Cingjing for a short stopover visit as part of our one-day sightseeing tour. The first impression of this place is a wine museum, in particular, Chinese wine. Walking around and seeing the exhibits, many of which have been displayed for a long time, would create a deeper understanding of the wine culture and... More

Nothing special except for a narrow passage stacked with empty wine pots which make it looks like a tunnel. There is no manufacturing tours and pictures and diagrams depicting the building and manufacturing processes.

Went for Taichung and Puli happened to be on the way back to Taipei route. It can be just an experience for the kids, the only attraction was they get to taste icecream made from fruits wine! Taste more fruitti than wine. Our guide, Xiao Zhang was kind to buy us some wine eggs to try. Overall, if you have... More

It was not really worth the time spent there unless you have planned to buy something. There is a famous Puli Mi Fen shop just opposite the brewery which serves interesting mifen and dishes.

We stop over here on the 4th March 2013 on the way back from SML to Taichung. The place feels like a VERY big shop with many things made with the wine produced by the place. some of the things are really very nice, like the wine "gou dong - fruit jelly". If you like them, you need to buy... More

The museum itself is small and easy to miss (take the escalator to the second floor), and can be viewed in 20 minutes. Many of the signs are in Chinese so it is helpful if you are traveling with a Taiwanese friend or guide. Note that the wine shop in the museum does not offer free wine tasting (need to... More

The brewery is in fact more like a souvenir shop. You can see a bit of history about the brewery and wine there but nothing special about them. It's worth while for a brief "bathroom" stop though.
