Talking to us, Ms. Po Min Huong, Head of Coc Ngu village said: There are 28 households in Coc Ngu village who work as winemakers. Each household can cook about 100 liters/month. The PaDi people grow maize mainly to make wine and to serve livestock. Coc Ngu wine is made from local glutinous corn, there are also a few households that also cook plain corn. But according to the Pa Di people in Coc Ngu near Sapa Vietnam, sticky corn wine has a much better taste, sells for more, and the longer it is kept in a jar, the better it is.
I don’t know if the profession of making corn wine has ever existed, only know that the Pa Di people in Coc Ngu now, when they grow up and get married, all learn the secret from their grandparents and parents. The same recipes for boiling corn, fermenting, but with the secret of the Pa Di people have made the unique and attractive flavor of Coc Ngu wine. According to the old people in the village, because the water source and climate here are different from other places, it creates a good wine. Because there are many Pa Di people, after getting married and getting married, they also bring this secret to some other villages in the district, even in the commune, but when making wine, it is not as good as cooking in Coc Ngu village.
