Rice wines, Yakju-type, were brewed with typical raw materials plus powdered acorns, and storage qualities of the fermented wines were examined. Initial optical densities of the acorn added-rice wines were shown around 0.116 at 660 nm and then decreased to $0.06{\sim}0.075$ after 10 days storage at $4^{\circ}C$. Organic acid contents in the acorn added-rice wines were lower than that of the control: the contents were lactic, succinic, citric, malic, oxalic and fumaric acid in order; and gallic acid, a kind of tannic substances was 0.39 mg%. Peroxide values of the acorn added-rice wines were not markedly changed for 9 days, remaining as low as $2{\sim}3\;meq\;kg^{-1}$ lard of lard, but that of the control was increased to $265\;meq\;kg^{-1}$ lard. As the results of clarity, acidity and antioxidation, the acorn added-rice wines appeared to be preservable, owing to tannic substances extracted from acorn powder.
