Can you tell me the names of wineries in famous works of literature?

(For a piece that I'm writing)

Probably not what you're looking for, but Xinghuacun is mentioned in Qing Ming, a poem from the Tang dynasty about people wandering around in the mist after a tomb sweeping holiday, looking for a drink to take the edge off.

There's a Lord Peter Wimsey story (which I am too lazy to look up) about Peter and a would be impersonator showing up at the house of a person who knows Peter only by reputation. The host decides that the way to tell the difference is to have both men identify a selection of wines by taste.

I didn't know enough about wine when I read it to know if the wineries were real or fictitious.

Lake-town in the Hobbit is referenced as distributing wine

The Cask of Amontillado refrences wine.


But I don't know any references to wineries really
