Earliest Vintage?

Making wine is a very old practice, and it didn't start in Europe. A 7000 year-old jar found in Hajji Firuz Tepe, a Neolithic village in Iran's northern Zagros Mountains, was discovered bearing trace resins strongly suggesting wine.

Grapes for these super-early vintages might have been harvested from some of the first organized, domesticated crops—farming distinguishes the Neolithic period more than a specific period of time.
