THE CRADLE OF WINE GROWING IS SITUATED IN MODERN DAY GEORGIA AND ITS ROOTS ARE NEOLITHIC. NEW CONFIRMATIONS ON THE ORIGINS OF WINE HAVE BEEN FOUND IN GRAPE SEEDS AND WINE DUST AT THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIG IN GADACHRILI GORA

Archeological excavations at Gadachrili Gora in the southeastern region of Georgia, Kvemo Kartli, have confirmed that the cradle of winemaking is situated in modern day Georgia and its roots begin in the Neolithic era at the dawning of civilization. Archaeologists have found in ancient pottery vessels vine dust and grape seeds that date back to 6.000 BC, according to the National Museum of Georgia. The studies were carried by the National Museum of Georgia, together with the University of Toronto, and demonstrate this is the first appearance of wine, or a product produced from a cultivated plant in these areas and era.
The discovery confirms the 2014 hypothesis when, at the beginning of the archaeological project carried out by the Georgian Wine Association and the National Wine Agency of Georgia, they found legumes and pottery, related tools and instruments, in all likelihood for domesticated wine production in addition to other seeds and wine residues, noted the US portal "Wine-Searcher"(www.wine-searcher.com).
“The diversity of wild and indigenous grape varieties, the unique wine vessels and the oldest wine-making technologies, confirms that Georgia really is the most ancient wine growing and wine making country”, commented the director of the museum, Davit Lortkipanidze.
