Ancient and Tucked Away Wine Regions

Wine has been a part of humanity for almost all of modern history.
This fermented grape juice has been something intrinsic to many cultures, societies, even several religions.

However, a lot of the wine regions most known to consumers today are relatively young compared to these wine growing homelands.
While not all of these regions have made wine for their entire history, some have been quietly working away for thousands of years.

Some of these regions are doing plenty of things in the modern sense, but this section is for all those amazing wine making regions of the old world, who are currently being over-showered by the more well-known producers.
