From Ancient to Modern Wine

We have changed significantly from our ancient counterparts, but one thing that truly connects the past with the present is the love of alcohol. With the advent of agriculture, people finally experienced surpluses, which in turn, allowed ancient humans to prosper and grow their communities. It became less difficult to produce food, but now these communities  were met with a larger problem: how to store this abundance of food for future use.

“And then came alcohol”

wine-lede_2.jpgThis new substance would take weeks, even months, to sour and rot. Along with its resistance to spoiling, alcohol provided nutrients and carbohydrates, something very necessary to everyday survival. It was this substance that helped communities grow especially during periods when food was scarce. Alcohol even promoted developments in agriculture, encouraging farmers to perfect food production processes to retain as much nutrients as possible during fermentation.

Beer and wine became prime sources of energy for growing civilizations. It allowed our ancestors to transform simple sugars from fruits and grains into a long-lasting source of vigor.

From Ancient to Modern Wine

Wine alone, has become an important beverage that people have even perished to drink its sweet nectar. The art of wine making has been perfected over the years, but the process remains the same: ferment the sugars from various fruits to produce wine.

Here at XIMO Brewing Equipment, we bring our customers back to their ancient roots with a modern twist. Our equipment allows you to develop and ferment your very own wines while being able to control almost every variable to ensure you get that perfect blend of beautiful and provocative. The process of making wine may still be the same, but today, there are much better options to making the perfect blend. Think of XIMO Brewing Equipment the next time you think of expanding your winery or when starting your first business venture into the wine industry.
