Winemaking, or vinification, is the combination of two disciplines, Viticulture, the art and science of growing grapes, and Enology, the science and art of making wine. The earliest evidence of a grape based fermented drinks was found in China (7000BC), Georgia (6000BC), Iran (5000BC) and Sicily about 4000BC. The oldest known winery was the Areni-1 winery in Armenia about 4100 BC.
