Wine Remains Discovered in Georgia Named among the World’s 10 Most Important Findings
The Archeology, international research magazine of US Archaeological Institute, has named ancient wine remains discovered in Georgia in 2017 among the world’s 10 most important findings.
“Chemical analysis of ceramics found on early neolithic monuments has proved that this is the ancient wine remains in Near East. Wine acid in huge volume on clay pot, along with other indicators, represents one of the key biological markers of grapes and wine. This signifies that people on this territory used to make wine 6000 years B.C. – about 500 years earlier of the previous discovery. According to this finding, wild Eurasian grape was firstly used in this region," the magazine reads.
For many decades a group of Georgian national museum archaeologists have been examining Gadachrili Gora, an archaeological monument of neolithic period in the village of Imri, Kvemo Kartli.
