Archeological excavations in Myrtos, Crete, unearthed vessels bearing traces of wine (2000 BC). At a later date, a wine press where grapes were pressed and must was yielded was found in its entirety at Vathipetro, in the Archanes vineyards. It is the world’s oldest wine press, a part of the age-old, Greek winemaking tradition of building lena (wine presses) with many of them carved into the rock.
