The History of Wine

Ancient Greeks’ heritage is not only the world known Acropolis, but also the wine. The wine has been closely related to the Greeks and the ancient Greek lifestyle for more than 4.000 years.

It is believed that grape yards were originally cultivated to regions of very cold temperatures and then to Kafkasos, Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt, regions that are now identified as wine’s ‘homeland’.
