Grapes, Wine & Rainbows


Ancient Egyptians collecting grapes for wine
Archaeologists have uncovered evidence that grapes were grown to make wine about 8,000 years ago in Mesopotamia (today's Iraq), although the ancient Egyptians were the first to record the process of making wine about 5,000 years ago.

Iris means "rainbow" in Greek, and Iris was goddess of the rainbow in Greek mythology.
