Wine made some 2,400 years ago was found last Thursday in an ancient tomb in Baishui County, Shaanxi Province.
Local archaeologists said they unearthed a sealed bronze pot containing 2 kg of red liquid during an excavation of an ancient tomb built in the Warring States Period (475 BC - 221 BC). Wafts of the ancient vintage greeted the archaeologists after they opened the pot.
The find has been sent to Beijing for tests and verification.
