Pipe-wine production

30/12/2010 17:00
Pipe-wine is a unique kind of beverage produced in Hoa Binh

The wine is made from a variety of forest leaves mixed with a fermentation-causing starch. The rice for making this wine is a kind that is husked, not pounded, which still contains its purity. The rice is mixed with ground husk, then steamed and incubated for around five days or more before served; for the best taste, this incubating time must be at least three months. To enjoy drinking, one pours cooled, boiled water into the pot and draw upon the pipes communally to enjoy this specialty.
