Alice in Wine Wonderland

January 6, 2018WINE SEARCHER

Georgia – the country not the state – now has validation to their world’s oldest wine region claim.

Proof was discovered just 30 miles south of Tbilisi. Carbon dating excavated pottery jars containing wine traces linked to 5980BC left the previous oldest, Iran, in the dust by about 1000 years. But in a world where people race to be the biggest, the best, or the oldest, I thought Georgia already had something far superior. Tenacity.
