Discover Wine Facts

  • The oldest preserved bottle of wine, known as Römerwein, dates back to the 4th Century and it is on display in a German museum.

 

  • A 73-year-old bottle of French Burgundy became the most expensive bottle of wine ever sold at auction, fetching $558,000. The bottle of 1945 Romanee-Conti was sold by Sotheby’s in 2018.

 

  • The earliest archaeological evidence of wine fermentation found has been at sites in China (c. 7000 BC)

 

  • The average age of a French oak tree harvested for use in creating wine barrels is 170 years.

 

  • Champagne gets its bubbles in the bottle. Wine is still when it’s bottled, but yeast and sugar are added to the mix which create the carbon dioxide as they interact over at least 15 months.

 

  • A ‘vintage’ wine is one made only with grapes harvested in the same year. ‘Non-vintage’ wines are blends of several years’ grapes. Many of the largest names in champagne produce non-vintage bottles.

 

  • If a husband found his wife drinking wine in the early Roman times, he was at liberty to kill her. It was forbidden that women drink wine.

 

  • California is the fourth-largest wine producer in the world, just behind France, Italy, and Spain.
