Other Old World Wines

Forget France, forget Italy and forget the Romans, the origins of wine production lie rather further east.

Lebanon and Israel lay claim to be the cradles of viticulture, but a ‘winery’ dating back over 6,000 years has recently been found in Georgia. Then there’s Armenia, Iran, Turkey and Greece in the frame so the counter-claims may go on until the aurochs come home! Even India dates back to several centuries BC. What doesn’t change is the consumers’ surprise that such countries even make wine. There is important production in the Balkans and dynamic wine industries in Austria and Hungary. The wines of England and Wales, both sparking and still, will be more familiar to many.
