By Owen Weldon     Oct 3, 2013 in World
Researchers in Greece unearthed some wine samples that date way back to 4200 B.C., making it at least 6,000 years old. The wine samples are thought to be the oldest samples that have ever been recorded in Europe.
According to Huffington Post, researchers announced the findings after they found out the final results of residue analysis from ancient ceramics. According to researchers the excavation took place at a prehistoric settlement that is known as Dikili Tash, which is located a little more than a mile from Philippi, an ancient city.
According to Times Of Malta, quantities of carbonised grape berries that were pressed were found in pots inside a house on the site. Researchers said that they knew that wine was drunk by people from the 12th century BC and on, but now they know that the process of making wine has been around long before that.
According to Greek Reporter, the wine samples are thought to be the oldest samples that have ever been recorded in Europe.
Researchers say that this discovery is a very important one.
