Fun fact: The "Nebuchadnezzar," the largest bottle of wine, is equivalent to 20 regular-sized bottles or approximately 15 litres.
Have you ever wondered where this smooth, enchanting drink emerged from? Even though France is called the 'wine capital of the world', wine was first produced in China. From there, it crossed over to Georgia and Armenia, where the world's oldest winery exists now.
However, wine has a fascinating link to Greek mythology. It is said that Dionysus (son of Zeus) and his mistress Semele, developed wine while dwelling among nymphs on the ancient Mount Nysa - one of the reasons Dionysus is known as the "God of Wine."
So when you delicately take a swig out of that glass of red wine, remember you are really sipping on the 'drink of the Gods.'
