The First Vineyard
Wine Regions Of The Ancient Mediterranean

The accidental making of wine probably happened wherever wild grapes grew and people lived. A much greater step was the cultivation of the vine. Archaeologists can tell from grape pips found in ancient settlements whether the grapes were wild or cultivated. Cultivated pips have been unearthed in the Caucasus, the region at the eastern end of the Black Sea. They date from 7,000 years ago. Somewhere in this region - in what is now Turkey, or Georgia, or Armenia - which is well suited by climate and relief to the growing of the vine, and where the vine indeed once grew wild, the first vineyard was planted.
