        According to the Sino-US joint archaeological teams in two urban areas in Rizhao, Shandong province, according to a new research report, through chemical analysis of pottery unearthed in the area, detecting residual components of the wine. Experts point out that tartaric acid or tartaric acid salt composition Herald in the late Neolithic, two people in urban areas have begun to use as yeast for brewing of grape blend.
        In 1995, the Archaeological Institute of Shandong University and United States some archaeologists have established a joint archaeological teams start 20 km North-East from Rizhao regional system for investigation of the two towns.
        Members of the archaeological team, Oriental Institute of archaeology, Hui Fang, a Professor of Shandong University said the findings refute the views of wine were parked. "Academia generally agree that wine is of Central Asian origin, in the 2nd century BC came to China. In this era than we detected in two city region of mixed wine about 2000 years later. ”
        He said wine raw materials in Central Asia is the artificial cultivation of the Eurasian grape variety, and blend in in two city parts more like bryony as local ingredients.
