Summary
The origins of wine go back to the origins of modern humankind and was considered something special, almost divine. The considerable effort, the careful nurturing and cultivation of the grape plant for several years before it is able to bear fruit, the annual cycle of work in the vineyard leading to a single, once-a-year harvest, the careful collection of the grapes and their transport, the pressing of grapes and the alcoholic fermentation to transform the juice into wine, the storage of the finished wine that ensures it does not spoil, making, such knowledge and labor of the wine-producer one of the most highly valued agricultural skills in the past and present.
