What is the average alcohol content of wine?
It's a beverage that has been around for thousands of years, with the earliest evidence coming from the country of Georgia around 6000 BCE. Spreading around the region over the next few thousand years. However, there is evidence of a fermented drink made with rice and grape in 7000 BCE. in ancient China.
The earliest know winery dating to 4100 BCE. in Armenia, the spread of wine was most likely from the Phoenicians who spread it from their city-states to all along the Mediterranean coast. Later on through medieval Europe, the Roman Catholic Church started using as sacrament for Mass. Monks would make it and age it in caves, an old English recipe survived in various forms until the 1800's, when the people demanded a more refined version and the old recipe became called "bastardo vino". Descendants created a much more palatable sacramental wine giving rise to modern viticulture in France, Italy, and Spain, which were then brought to the new world via New Mexico and California. These grapes kicked off the California winery industry making them the largest new world producers to this day. While France and Britain tried to establish grapevines in Florida and Virginia in the early days which failed due to the climate.
