Moreover, the Princess of Huijiang’s top was very short, and her snow-white belly was exposed. However, she did not care, and ignored the ogling of others, freely and candidly drinking the wine on the table.
The woman was too tired of the Palace’s wine and muttered something to her attendant, who took out the wine bag and poured her wine again.
Princess Huijiang took a sip and her eyes were closed with enjoyment, as if she was tasting some kind of exquisite liquid.
She made it look so good that others could not help but crave it.
Wen Qi Qi became attracted and turned her head to look at Gu Lin Chao, “Your Majesty, what is Princess Huijiang drinking, it seems to be very good.” She said, smacking her lips with a very greedy look.
Gu Lin Chao paused and said in a slow voice, “It’s grape wine.”
“Huh?” Wen Qi Qi froze, face disappointed, “So it’s grape wine.” She shrugged her shoulders and stopped paying attention to the Huijiang Princess.
Gu Lin Chao was a little surprised. From her tone, she sounded like she had drunk it.
Huijiang was rich in grapes and wine, but because of the long distance, it was very rare in Daye.
Usually only when they pay tribute will the Palace get some.
Not to mention the ordinary people, but even considering officials? It is extremely difficult for people to drink it.
But Wen Qi Qi looked like she was tired of drinking it long ago, which made him have a little doubt in his heart.
Originally, if she wanted to drink it, he had a way to get it for her, but she didn’t like it, so forget it.
“Your Highness has drunk grape wine?” Wang Hou De couldn’t help but ask.
“What’s so strange about having drunk it?” Wen Qi Qi asked rhetorically.
Wang Hou De said in surprise, “The Duke’s Residence has a collection of grape wine?”
Wen Qi Qi said casually, “Yes.”
Wang Hou De said admiringly, “Our royal family doesn’t have any, but I didn’t expect that the Duke of Ding’s family did.”
When Wen Qi Qi heard this, she turned her head to look at Gu Lin Chao and said uncertainly, “Is this grape wine very rare in Daye?”
Gu Lin Chao glanced at Wang Hou De and pursed his lips before saying, “If you want to drink it, it is not very rare.”
Wang Hou De’s scalp tightened at that look from his master.
Did he say something wrong again?
Wen Qi Qi felt that she had just said the wrong thing.
Since grape wine is a rare thing, she shouldn’t have said that she had drunk it. She also said that the Ding Guo Mansion had a collection. This is a very suspicious thing, okay?
“It’s not necessary, since people like me who don’t know about grape wine should not spoil the rare and good wine.” She waved her hand, with a tone of thanks.
Gu Lin Chao’s face became gloomy for a few minutes.
Wang Hou De and Si Yi, hurriedly took a few steps back.
The Regent has a good intention, but the Princess does not appreciate it, this ……
In no time, the palace banquet began, and the Palace servants holding mountains of dishes filled with food came in.
In addition, a dancer began to dance to the sound of silk and bamboo.
At this time, one of the envoys from Huijiang spat out the wine he had just drunk into his mouth, “What kind of wine is this, it’s really hard to drink.” He said in broken Chinese, disgusted.
The officials on Daye’s side were furious when they heard this.
“Sure enough, they are a barbaric people, they don’t know any manners at all.”
“That’s right, what a bumpkin. This is the Imperial wine of the Palace, not something that ordinary people can drink, but he wasted it for nothing.”
“He doesn’t know how to drink, and he doesn’t know how to hide his clumsiness, so he has to display his ugliness, which is really ridiculous.”
When the ambassadors from the Huijiang region heard this, they said disdainfully, “That’s because you haven’t had good wine.” With that, they untied the wine bag they had brought with them and threw it toward the Daye officials.
“What’s so strange, isn’t it just wine made from grapes?” The officials on Daye’s side were equally disdainful.
“I think you guys just don’t understand wine.” The envoy from Huijiang was a bit arrogant, “This wine is the best of wines, it is an elegant thing. It is not comparable to your yellow soup.”
