  “Drink a like-minded wine, you will have love wherever you travel, even to the corners of the earth.”This is the most widely spread and the oldest saying in Nujiang Region. Nujiang’s most famous wine is the Like-minded Wine. In Lisu dialect, “Like-minded wine”is pronounced as “Ban Duo”or “Xia Pian Da”, which means being united as one. Wine suggests passion and friendship, people of the common heart drink the like-minded wine, it means that they will have the same heart and mind, and they will remain friends forever, as it is a symbol of unity and friendship.

  This is the purest and simplest definition of “Like-minded wine”conferred by the Lisu people. If during a banquet feast the host invites guests to drink with the same cup of wine, it means that the host is full of trust in the guests and regards the guests as his friends. When old friends meet, they would sit together drinking wine and chatting to renew their friendship; if a young boy and a girl drink a bowl of Like-minded wine, that means they have decided to get married; if there is understanding or hatred or animosities among friends, drinking a bowl of the wine, the new and old hatreds among them will be melted to nothingness.
