Fun Fact Friday: Wine (Part 1)

It's late and this little blogger needs to head to bed, but I couldn't fall asleep without knowing I imparted something, so here is a drop of history on wine for your enjoyment.  I'll get you a more in depth analysis on the history and process later.  For now, enjoy this tidbit:

"Archaeologists found grape pips (seeds), usually considered evidence of winemaking, dating from 8000 B.C. in Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan. The oldest pips of cultivated vines were found in (then Soviet) Georgia from 7000-5000 B.C."

Mmm Turkish wine.  For more fun wine facts, click here.
