Greece is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. The earliest evidence of Greek wine has been dated to 6,500 years ago. The influence of ancient Greece on wine is significant to the development of almost all European wine regions and to the history of wine itself. The ancient Greeks pioneered new methods of viticulture and wine production that they shared with early winemaking communities in what are now France, Italy as well as others, through trade and colonization. Along the way, they markedly influenced the ancient European winemaking cultures of the Celts, Etruscans, Scythians and ultimately the Romans.
Nowadays, probably at the same areas and even at the same soil, this tradition continues to exist, as you can see in this image of vine harvesting in an area outside Athens in Attica region, just after sunrise.
