Reality TV's Kardashian family have found new bragging rights for their Armenian bloodline. New research in an Armenian cave has uncovered the earliest known wine-making equipment ever found dating back to around 4,100 BC.
Sciencedaily.com is reporting that "Analysis by a UCLA-led team of scientists has confirmed the discovery of the oldest complete wine production facility ever found, including grape seeds, withered grape vines, remains of pressed grapes, a rudimentary wine press, a clay vat apparently used for fermentation, wine-soaked potsherds, and even a cup and drinking bowl." These new artifacts were found "in the same mysterious Armenian cave complex where an ancient leather shoe was found, a discovery that was announced last summer."
Kourtney Kardashian recently commented on her own blog about this discovery, "This explains a lot, lol....Brown lace-up boots and a winery… our ancestors knew how to have a good time!"
