29 November 2017

Georgian wine got into the Guinness book of records. This is stated on the official web page of the organization.


Scientists agree that viniculture spread to the world from the territory of Georgia.


Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), official scientific journal of the National Academy of Sciences, published results of chemical analysis based on which tribes residing across Georgia’s territory began wine-making 8 thousand years ago.


The earliest biomolecular archaeological and archaeobotanical evidence for grape wine and viniculture from the Near East, ca. 6,000–5,800 BC during the early Neolithic Period, was obtained by excavated materials from two sites in Georgia.

The pottery was discovered in two antique Neolithic villages, called Gadachrili Gora and Shulaveris Gora, about 50 kilometers away from Tbilisi. Georgian, Canadian, American, French and Italian scientists are the authors of the article published in PNAS.
