      1). In 1980, a tightly sealed copper container with liquid was
      unearthed in an ancient tomb in Henan Province. The dead was believed
      to be living in later period of Shang Dynasty (3000 years ago). After
      having been analysed by Beijing University, the liquid in the copper
      container was considered to be wine ("wine which preserved for 3000
      years", <<Niang Jiu>>, May, 1987), So, scholars have put forward
      recently a standpoint that production of wine already existed in
      China in Shang Dynasty. But, it is not clear whether the grape was
      planted or wildly grown at that time. But archaeologists had
      extravated the remained fruits and kernel of peach, plum and jujube
      in a pottery jar found in a wine workshop of the middle period of
      Shang Dynasty. Although without sufficient written proofs, it is
      certain that wine made from fruits was a kind of alcoholic drink in
      the remote antiquity, according to the archaeological data mentioned
      above and the simple techniques required for making it.

      2) In later Qing Dynasty, wine was imported to China from the West.
      In 1892, a overseas Chinese Zhang Bishi established vinery and winery
      ( Changyu Wine Company) in Yantai, Sandong Province. This was the
      first large scale winery owned by Chinese.

      1). The Changyu Wine Culture Museum displays these awards, and other
      fascinating displays about the production of Chinese wine over the
      last century.

      2). Four Changyu wines have been given top awards by the Panama-
      Pacific International exposition. It was about 100 years ago that
      Chinese wine, the Changyu wine, started winning international awards.
