Kim Long Wine
Kim Long is a specialty found in Kim Long Village, Hải Lăng District, Quảng Trị Province. This iconic wine was created during the French colonialism when the French governors established a wine factory under their own surveillance and hence transferred all local wine-making households intone big factory. Because of such, a prohibition against local winemaking was promulgated.

No gas or charcoal is allowed yet firewood only in order to preserve the initial delicacy and taste of Kim Long Wine.
