Communities around the world have been turning grapes into wine for thousands of years. With that being said, no one is certain who the first was to ferment grapes into wine. Keep reading to learn more!
The Origin of Wine
There is evidence of ancient wine production found in China, the Middle East, & Greece, so it’s possible many regions discovered it at once. Wine has changed immensely over the years, with different flavors constantly being developed and combined.
With that being said, the process of making it hasn’t changed in the thousands of years since its invention. The process is as follows: grapes are crushed, pressed, and fermented, and the mixture is sealed into barrels. This mixture is then aged and bottled. With these simple steps, wines can be created in all regions of the world.
There are a variety of different things that affect the way grapes grow and how the wine tastes. Things like soil, temperature, and weather all play a part. If two bottles of the same wine were created at the same vineyard, they still may taste different depending on the year, season and weather. Use National Drink Wine Day this year to experiment with the different flavors of wines.
