According to’s blog post “100 Essential Wine Facts,” the oldest known winery dates to 4100 BCE in Armenia. The Phoenicians introduced wine to the ancient Greeks during the 10th Century BCE, and the Greeks inspired the Romans to grow grapes across their empire. It is believed that U.S. vineyards were planted in California when Thomas Jefferson returned from France with vine cuttings.


Another fun wine fact is that the color of a wine is determined by the contact that the grape juice has with grape skins. Thus, red wine can only be made from blue or purple-skinned grapes. White wine can also be pressed from darker grapes, but only if the juice is separated from the skins. Rosé, which is a shade that falls between red and white, is crafted by allowing the juice to come in limited and controlled contact with dark grape skins.
