Georgia: Inventor of Wine
16 November 2017
Less than 30km south of Tbilisi, a cluster of small, round mud houses stand on top of an emerald-green valley. The settlement is called Gadachrili Gora and, in a report published this week, its people were found to be the makers of the oldest wine in history. The stone age farmers who occupied this place 8000 years ago lived in a period when humans were still dependent on stone tools. Georgians have always claimed to be the inventors of wine and this evidence is now the earliest example of wine making in the world. It pre-dates 7000-year-old specimens in north-western Iran and 6000-year-old evidence found in Armenia. The discovery was published in the journal ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences’ (PNAS). The team was composed of a group of international archaeologists led by Patrick McGovern...
