Wine has a long history; its origin can be traced back to ancient times, although grapevine cultivation has been around way before. 80% of grape production goes to winemaking.

Like other great things discovered, wine came about from a fortunate stroke of serendipity. Around 7000 BC, someone drank a fermented grape juice, and wine was finally born!

Georgia is said to be where the earliest wine production started, although other evidence also showed traces of winemaking in China around 6000 BC. It slowly spread to different countries such as Greece and Italy. The oldest winery is in the mountain area of Armenia.

When grape juice ferments, wine is created. Oenologists perform intricate tasks to ensure that the quality of the wine is maintained. The grape, the oak used for the barrel, and the storage temperature and humidity affect the quality of wine produced.

Wine is undoubtedly a drink enjoyed around the world as it brings not only pleasure but also health benefits. Research shows that wine is a good antioxidant, reduces the risk of heart disease, and even helps prevent cancer.
