Wine is part of Modern Civilization

Through a consensus of sorts, Modern Civilization began in the latter part of the Stone Age, a period known as the Neolithic Age. Pottery, domestication of animals, farming, religion, and other fundamental components of modern society began or flourished around the world during this period, between 4,500 to 10,000 years ago. Whether by coincidence, or as a result of, winemaking also started at this juncture in human evolution (along with beer). Winemaking hardware was recently discovered dating back to 8,000 years ago. Wine is older than coffee and tea. Winemaking and distribution is part of the human adventure on this planet. And while we may likely figure out how to make wine on the Moon, Mars, and beyond, the choicest regions on Earth will continue to be the origen, and standard of good wine. José Moura Selections has created relationships in those regions in order for the working people of the US and Puerto Rico to sample the standards of wine excellence.
