File photo - "EXCLUSIVE - Prince Henrik of Denmark is seen in his vineyards around Caix Castle, in Caix, Cahors region, southwestern France, on September 24, 2009. Every year, the Prince comes to Caix to participate in the vintage, from the grape harvest up to the cask filling. He prefers red wine because the grapes are hand picked. Today, the prince was amaized by the foggy atmosphere around the vineyards. The 25 hectares family estate produces about 150,000 bottles of 'Cahors' red and white wine, but the vineyard also started to produce Rose wine. Red wine represents 70% of the castle's wine production. Best selling around the world are the 2002-2005 vintages called ""La CuvÀe du Prince du Danemark, Chateau de Caix, CAHORS"". The prince's wine is exported for 50% in Denmark, 20% in France and 30 % in the rest of the world. Wine is a family tradition: Henrik's brother and sister also own some land next to his lands, and Queen Margrethe backs her husband's passion. In October 2009, Prince Henrik will open the first of ten wine stores called 'La Cave du Roi des Vins de France' in China. The first one in Shanghai, the second one in Beijing. Prince Henrik, the French-born husband of Denmark's Queen Margrethe II, has died, the palace announced Wednesday. He was 83. Photo by Patrick Bernard/ABACAPRESS.COM"
