Winemaking has been around awhile

Wine has been around for ages, but exactly when might be hard to say. However, consider that the cultivation of grapes probably goes back nearly 8,000 years in Eastern Europe. The Romans may have been first civilized society to create wines or what we would call winemaking. They also started varieties of grapes to help create winemaking.
