Looking for Advice on Shaoxing rice wine

Nathan P. | Jan 2, 200407:31 PM     9

I'm getting ready to try some of the Sichuan recipes in Land of Plenty and one of the ingredients I need that I have not purchased before is Shaoxing wine. Are there any particular brands or things to be aware of? Are there 'cooking wine' variations with salt that I need to avoid?

Also for you SF area hounds I plan on being in Oaklands chinatown and perhaps on Clement in SF next week so I would gladly take any specific store/brand advice there as well.

Thanks,

Nathan
