In a study that was published on Monday, researchers lead by Dr Patrick McGovern, a molecular archaeologist from the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and lead author of the study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, discovered telltale signs of wine residue on pottery shards from two archaeological sites in Georgia that date back to 6000 B.C. these are the earliest findings to date of wine made from grapes.

This research definitively confirms the country of Georgia as the cradle of wine, with evidence dating back 8000 years.
