Jiaxing Xitang Wine Museum, Jiashan County

#2 of 9 in Things to do in Jiashan County
Landmark Tourist Spot
Included in the Xitang Water Town tours, Jiaxing Xitang Wine Museum offers a collection of traditional winemaking tools displayed in an old house. Xitang developed as a rice wine brewing center in the Ming period and the museum seeks to illustrate this process through several dozen drawings and artifacts, such as old pots, presses, and urns. You can see the results of research into winemaking and wine drinking culture as reflected in folklore, literature, and local economy, but with very little information in English and no guided tours.
