8000-year-old jars

World's 'oldest wine' found in 8000-year-old jars

The earthenware jars containing residual wine compounds were found in two sites south of the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, researchers said.

Some of the jars bore images of grape clusters and a man dancing.

Previously, the earliest evidence of wine-making was from pottery dating from about 7000 years ago found in north-western Iran.

The finds were published in theĀ journalĀ Proceedings of the National Academy of SciencesĀ (PNAS).
