New meaning for aged wine

Archeologists from Canada are among a team of researchers who say they’ve unearthed the earliest evidence of winemaking in the world.

The discovery, reported in a study being published this week, was made in the South Caucasus region in Georgia, a country on the border of eastern Europe and western Asia.

Previously, the earliest known chemical evidence of wine made from grapes was dated to 5,400 to 5,000 B-C in Iran.

But the archeologists say they can now trace the practice to about 6,000 B-C in sites about 50 kilometres south of the Georgian capital of Tbilisi.
