“Anyone who tries to make you believe that he knows all about wines is obviously a fake.”
― Leon Adams, The Commonsense Book of Wine
“Age is just a number. It’s totally irrelevant unless, of course, you happen to be a bottle of wine.”
― Joan Collins
“The discovery of a wine is of greater moment than the discovery of a constellation. The universe is too full of stars.”
― Benjamin Franklin, circa 1700s
The first white wine can be traced all the way back to the antiquities approximately 7500 years ago from wine located in what’s now Iran. Unfortunately, even though we’ve located this significant find, it does little to tell us just how long wine has been produced, which, in all fairness could centuries prior.
What we do know is that wine was very present throughout much of the Middle East. In third millennium BC, the tablets of Hattusa can found talking much about white wine.
Wine was discovered about 6,000 years ago in either Mesopotamia, Palestine/Israel, or what is now called Georgia. It originally fermented by accident when native yeasts stuck to grapes stored in containers turned the sugars in the grapes into alcohol. The ancient Egyptians refined the sciences of both grape growing and winemaking and included wine in burial crypts for consumption in the afterlife. The Greeks spread winemaking throughout the Mediterranean, and the Romans turned it into a big business. The Spanish exploration of the New World brought winemaking to the Americas, while other Europeans took it to Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
