History of wine
Where did it started and where are we now
The renowned alcoholic drink has a long and illustrious history. Archaeologists believe that wine originated in the areas that are known today as Northern Iran, Transcaucasia, and Eastern Turkey. According to experts, this drink was consumed more than 8000 years ago in this region.
Several philologists trace the word "wine" to a variety of different origins. There are many hypotheses about the origin of this term, but none have been definitively established. Since the earliest evidence of winemaking was discovered on Georgian soil, the origins of this word are also almost certainly Georgian.
An ancient winery site in Armenia, grape residue found in clay jars in Georgia, and indicators of grape domestication in eastern Turkey are all examples of early wine production evidence dating from 6,000 BC to 4,000 BC. We still haven't figured out where wine comes from, but we think we know who manufactured it!
The Shulaveri-Shomu people (also known as the "Shulaveri-Shomutepe Culture") are claimed to have been the first to make wine in this region. People used obsidian for tools, bred cattle and pigs, and, most critically, produced grapes throughout the Stone Age (neolithic age).
