During excavations in the South Caucasus, qvevris were found – large jugs used to make wine.

Archaeologists have discovered clay vessels used for making wine. The artifacts date back 8,000 years, they have the remains of grapes dated 6,000 BC. It points to Georgia, which was the birthplace of wine in Europe, Mashed wrote.

It is noted that the eastern region of Kakheti is a well-known wine-growing region. This happened because of favorable conditions. Specifically, high terrain, moist coastal breezes and mild winters.

There are many generations that have grown about 500 varieties of grapes.

Scientists believe that the ancestors of modern Georgians made wine by aging grape juice.

“It is interesting that in Georgia you can taste wines made using the same traditional technologies as thousands of years ago. During excavations in the South Caucasus, qvevris were found – large jugs that used to make wine, passed down from generation to generation by Georgian families, rural communities and farmers since Neolithic times. After pressing the grapes, the juice is poured into kvevri for fermentation and stored in pits underground throughout the winter, sometimes for decades,” the archaeologists said.

Remember that a bottle of wine from Speyer is the oldest in the world. It is dated between 325-359 and remained sealed for 1700 years.
