fruit with history

bacchus, dios del vinoVines are one of the oldest crops in the world. Their origins are supposed to be from the shores of the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea and were probably grown there some 8000 years ago. The Mediterranean civilisations such as the Egyptians, the Phoenicians, the Babylonians and the Greeks already rated grapes, also as wine, and the Romans brought them to the north of Europe. During the Middle Age vines could be found in northern Germany, always planted on the sunny side of houses.
