Fine Rice Wine Tasting in a Hidden Hutong
Duration: 1 hour

With a much softer and sweeter flavor than Chinese Baijiu, rice wine is widely appreciated by Chinese people. In just the same way that wine tasting is a must when visiting Bordeaux, trying rice wine when visiting China is a great way to relax and experience a beloved local drink.
Located in a hidden hutong, which is a traditional Chinese alleyway, Nuoyan Rice Wine House offers a pleasant atmosphere where travelers can taste traditional rice wine.
Nuoyan in Chinese means ‘promise' and the wine house got its name because of a promise made by the brewer to his girlfriend. You will be served five to six different flavors of rice wine. This experience is perfect for couples who can sip wine together while listening to the brewer's love story. By the end of this experience, you may have forgotten that you are a tourist in this city.
