It is believed that wine culture began around eight to six thousand years ago in the Caucasus and followed the same path as civilization routes.2 There is numerous archaeological evidence that viticulture had then spread to Mesopotamia, the Jordan valley, and Egypt by around five thousand years ago.3 In the Mediterranean, evidence of advanced viticulture practices traces back to, at least, between two and three thousand bc, to the Egyptian, Phoenician, Greek and Roman civilisations.4 The Phoenicians cultivated the wine and shared it with the world, but the Romans cultural hegemony stamped itself across most of what we now consider to be the Old World, in terms of wine production. Civilisations around Europe brought their industries with them, the Early Modern period made winemaking into a skilled pursuit in the Renaissance states of Italy where the appreciation of wine developed.
