Its still not really sure which people or tribe discovered the great invention of wine. However the oldest civilization that is known for its wine drinking were not the Romans or the ancient Greeks, but the Georgians. Georgia has certainly been clever at other times when it comes to marketing its wine. When President Mikhail Saakashvili went to a 2006 summit meeting of the GUAM group of countries -- Georgia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, and Moldova -- in Kiev, soon after Russia had initiated a boycott on his country's wine, Tbilisi arranged for billboards to be put up in the Ukrainian capital which promoted Georgian wine as "containing more freedom than allowed" and as the wine "prohibited in Russia."
