With Millennia of History, Turkish Wine Continues to Evolve

Turkey’s wine heritage dates back nearly 7,000 years, and its contemporary wine culture continues to evolve. While some of the world’s oldest known grape varieties in production are grown here, in recent years, low domestic consumption and a 2013 law prohibiting wine or spirits advertising and marketing led many Turkish wine producers to turn to the export market.

‘We Are the Land, and the Land Is Us’: Indigenous Māori Winemakers are Guardians of New Zealand Terroir

Māori people have lived in New Zealand—or Aotearoa, as it’s known in the te reo language—for nearly 1,000 years, long before the nation was colonized by the British in the early 19th century. The history of the Māori people’s relationship with their colonizers is one that echoes other nations around the globe: that of devastating disease, broken contracts, loss of land and systematic cultural oppression.

Judah Kingdom’s Elite Consumed Wine Enriched with Vanilla, Archaeologists Say

The team’s results, published in the journal PLoS ONE, show that the jars were used for storing olive oil and wine flavored with vanilla.

This is why wine was a warrior’s drink for most of history

This is why wine was a warrior’s drink for most of history

For millennia warriors consumed alcohol in the form of wine, thus it became intertwined into military traditions. The exquisite taste, nutritional benefits, and, not least, psychoactive effects all contribute to our natural affinity for this drink. No other alcoholic beverage has had such a profound social influence. The wine trade allowed religious and philosophical thoughts to flow across Europe. From Noah and his grape vines through Jesus, probably the greatest winemaker of all time, wine is widely quoted in the Bible.
