Using a skewer, pierce the chicken wings a few times on all sides and place in a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon rice wine, 1 tablespoon oil and the salt. Mix well and marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat a little oil in a frying pan over medium high heat, then add the chicken wings. Turn to low heat and brown wings on all sides. Move the wings to a side of the pan. Heat a little more oil on the other side, add the ginger and garlic and saute till fragrant but not browned.
Add remaining rice wine and stir well. Add soy sauce, oyster sauce and sugar, and stir well. Add water to just cover the wings. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook uncovered until the sauce is thickened. For the last few minutes of cooking you can return to high heat to rapidly reduce the sauce.
Go ahead and double the recipe to feed four. This also makes a great starter.
