Wine Facts: Origins of Wine

Posted on

We recently found out the origin of wine according to legend, which may be as interesting to you as it was to us!

According to legend, the discovery of wine is the story of Jamsheed a semi-mythical Persian king, who may have been Noah. A woman of his harem tried to take her life with fermented grapes, which were thought to be poisonous. Wine was discovered when she found herself rejuvenated and lively.

We don’t know the details of why she tried to take her own life, but we are all certainly thankful for her discovery! Keep a lookout for future wine facts posted on our blog, and of course learn more about our wines with every visit to the Trattoria!
