It was in Asia Minor and the lands surrounding it that men first learned how to cultivate the grapevine. Earliest traces of wine culture in history have repeatedly been discovered in the many civilizations that flourished in Anatolia, millenniums ago. Yet for various reasons, this culture eventually became more pronounced in Europe, spreading from there to the new worlds and never really returning to where it actually first laid roots. Cultural selection led to the development of the few noble grape varieties whose undeniably superior quality of wines provided joy to wine lovers for centuries.
