This month will be the inaugural Beshan Gāi, an exciting celebration of artisan China in the form of a 1-day boutique bazaar. As the day draws nearer, here is a ‘sneak peek’ from Shancunfengwu, just one of the talented artisans who will be joining us.
Shancunfengwu Rice Wine 山村風物供銷社
Wine made from the fermentation of rice starch originated in China. Today, there are many variations found throughout Asia but at Shancunfengwu wines in Fujian, they follow ancient customs to make traditional Hakka Rice Wine – a local delicacy.
They select high quality, organic ingredients and source water from a natural stream. All of the traditional processes are completed by hand and close attention is paid to the Chinese Lunar calendar.
Some of the wines have been fermenting for years; the producers blow the dust off the top of the bottle before it is consumed.
Beshan Gāi will bring together hand-crafted and hand cultivated treasures from all corners of the country to Beijing. Join us at The Opposite House on Saturday September 19th to shop, wine and dine in style and sophistication. Click below to visit the Beshan Gāi site:
