Day Tour to Wuzhen and Haining (2)

One place that we visited at Wuzhen this time was the Rice Wine Factory. The Rice wine is made in the same way as it has been for centuries and there were many pottery barrels on display.
There was a man filling tiny china cups with the brew and we could all have a taste. It was powerful stuff. Cleared the head! Fascinating to see it all.
I don't think anyone bought any of their packs of wine - I didn't want to as it mean I had to carry it for the rest of the day. I quite like Rice wine - in small doses. It is cheap. Less than $AU1 a bottle.
