The yellow river gave rise to the Chinese culture and so with the traditions and religions various bronze vessels came forth during the late Shang dynasty. At this time the people drank wine from millet as it was the areas stablest grain, during this period the wine was preferred to be served warm. In the early Han dynasty, the wine was prepared in a wine stove made from bronze with a small fire below. It is believed that the wine back then was similar to the yellow wine we know today in China. Yellow wine is non-distilled water with rice, millet, wheat or any other cereals. The alcohol content is always below 20% alcohol since this is the maximum the fermentation process can produce.
