Chinese Wine

Life of the Chinese People - Chinese wine

Chinese archaeologists have discovered pottery wine vessels at the ruins of Erlitou Culture which dates back to over 4,000 years ago. It proves that the Chinese people began to think wine at that time.

There are many stories about wine in Chinese history. Tao Yuanming, a poet in Jin Dynasty, could not live without wine for a day. The great poet Li Bai in Tang Dynasty could write hundred poems after drinking wine - the more wine he drank, the better the poem would be.

China is a country of amenity, attaching the importance to rules to everything. Taking drinking for an example, there are so many interesting things. For example, at a banquet, if someone wants to express his/her respect to their elders or superiors, he/she will toast. Before drinking the wine, they will touch their cups to show their affection. When they begin to drink, the younger's cup will be lower than the superior's to show respectng. The person who toasts on his/her own will empty one cup of wine at one go to show sincerities. It's a jolly time when the Chinese drink wine. On this occasions, everyone will be in a friendly mood. Sometimes rules for drinking will be set in a game when people drink in order to increase the liveliness. There are various kinds of rules for drinking, one of which is unchangeable, that is, for the people participating in the games, the loser will drink. In ancient times, among the intellectuals, the rules for drinking were generally to supply the antithesis to a given poem or phrase.

China has many famous brands of wine such as Maotai, Five-Grain Liquor, Fen Liquor, Bamboo-leaf Green Tribute Wine and so on, which enjoy a worldwide reputation.
