The origin of the wine is old as human civilization and magical qualities of fermented grape juice are discovered by accident and not an invention of man. The earliest evidence of drinking wine dating from 6000 – 5000 BC in the area of present-day Georgia and Iran. It is known that the ancient Egyptians produced wine and beer. Pictograms say that wine is reserved for pharaohs, priests and high aristocracy, while beer is available only for the brave builders of the pyramids. It is believed that the Egyptians were the first people who established the link between the way of storage and the quality of the wine. In 1991 during archaeological excavations in the lands of ancient Sumer were found fossilized grains of grapes, which are believed to have more than 10 000 BC which means that the origin of the wine is far in the Stone era. Most likely the inhabitants of the valley of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, where arises earliest human civilizations were the first to discover a means of producing wine.
