In the Middle Ages, wine became the popular drink no. Vines are among the oldest plants in the world. Grape seeds found in the late Cretaceous and the early Tertiary periods prove that vines already existed approx. After they had been pushed back to the Mediterranean region by the ice age, i. Researchers assume that it was approx. This is documented by the finds of 3,year-old bronze vessels which still contain liquid wines and the find of an approx. Winegrowing in ancient Egypt Because of its sweetness, even the oldest Egyptian dynasties were very partial to wine from Thebes.
Numerous wall paintings in Egyptian burial chambers document the winegrowing practices of the time. They can be used as illustrations, as they were meant to document the life of the deceased as accurately as possible.

The extraordinary significance of wine in society is also reflected by the fact that wine was a popular burial gift for high-ranking personalities and a frequent offering to the Egyptian gods. In addition to many different types of meat, poultry, bread and other foods and beverages, the nobility wanted to be given five different kinds of wine as a burial gift after death. From hieroglyphic texts, we now know that the Egyptians were not only familiar with winegrowing, they also distinguished between eight different wine varieties long before the dynastic period.
Researchers even assume that Egypt grew more wine in this period than it does today. Even seemingly modern elements of winegrowing such as irrigation, the designation of different vineyards by specific names and wine labelling have their roots in ancient Egyptian history. This is shown in an image of Princess Kauit. Her tomb shows her holding a cup of wine while performing her morning toilet.
In contrast to ancient Greece, wine was accessible to wide classes of population. The questions asked by winegrowers at the time hardly differed from the questions of today: What is the right vine variety, which climatic conditions and which types of soil are particularly favourable, and which is the optimum winemaking method? Over the years, wine production became more and more sophisticated and was increasingly relocated to the proximity of the biggest markets and the ports serving the export demand.
Even the Roman legions were supplied with wine, but the top qualities – which were already expensive in Roman times – were reserved to the rich in society. Together with the Roman Empire, the era of top-quality wines also ended in the 5th century, until Charlemagne conquered big parts of Italy and revitalised the winegrowing culture.
In the 14th century, Italy became a wine exporting country, and today it ranks second after France among the largest wine producers worldwide.
Germany also imports more wine from Italy than any other country. The ups and downs of wine in Germania It was again the Romans who brought winegrowing to Germania, as Roman wine monuments on the River Mosel show.
It is convincing that they considered transporting wine across the Alps to be too laborious, and they took along vines instead. In the 8th century, Charlemagne cultivated winegrowing, winemaking and wine sales so that wine established itself as the popular beverage no. Wine production then peaked in the transition years from the early to the high Middle Ages. Due to the warm medieval climate, winegrowing was even possible in areas bordering on the Baltic Sea. As a result of improved beer brewing practices, increasing wine imports and last but not least because of the climate change around the yearwinegrowing again experienced another strong decline.
After the destructions of the Thirty Years War had brought winegrowing in Europe to an almost complete stop, winegrowing flourished again in the 17th century. And wine quality also improved at this time, as the monasteries passed on their centuries of know-how to the winegrowers.
German viticulture than suffered a setback, from which it has not yet fully recovered, namely the introduction of the phylloxera pest in and of powdery and downy mildew from America. Since this time, the remaining indigenous grape varieties are grafted on resistant American roots. Today, this process is even prescribed by law and has been used to cultivate today’s standard grape varieties. Wine from overseas Many nations on other continents such as the United States of America, Argentina or Chile can look back on many years of winemaking tradition.
After their first failed attempts, which were attributable to the strong characteristic taste of the wild grapes, they tried to import vines from Europe. After they discovered more or less by coincidence that hybrid vines were resistant to downy mildew, the way was clear for professional winemaking. Viticulture was given an additional boost by the California gold rush after After winemaking collapsed almost completely in the Prohibition years between init recovered again after the s.
With the production of approx. Argentina ranks 5th among the world’s largest wine producers. Winegrowing in the country was started by the Spanish conquerors in the middle of the 16th century.
As in many other countries, it was primarily the monks who devoted themselves to winegrowing, because they needed altar wine. In the second half of the 19th century, Italian, Spanish and German immigrants brought the checkilste wide variety of vines to Argentina and they also introduced phylloxera, which is so feared by winegrowers.
Argentina is one of the biggest winegrowing countries worldwidehectares of vineyardsand its export business has been very successful cjeckliste recent years.
In addition to its export hit, the Malbec variety, indigenous varieties are getting more and more significant, its most important markets are the USA and Canada. Wine from the German regions German wines enjoy an excellent international reputation today. Just as the wine itself, the know-how of German vintners is in demand throughout the world. It is also due to this fact that, again and again, chekliste innovations tickle our palates such as the Kerner or the Dornfelder dheckliste varieties, which have only been grown since and respectively.
Sincethe German Wine Act ensures the minimum standard for wines. It stipulates, for example, that all German quality wines have to undergo an official chemical analysis, and they will be sensorially tested by a Wine-Tasting Commission Verkostungskommission.
In addition to the traditional winegrowing cyeckliste of the world, newcomers in this sector and vanguard trendsetters also present their products. The upcoming event, which will be organised with a new hall concept and two additional exhibition halls, will again bring together international experts to exchange their know-how and to maintain and extend the commercial relationships to their business partners.
