When it comes to wine, its often said that the older it is, the better is supposed to taste. Some of the oldest wines were sold at auctions as the most expensive wines in the world, but some of them are simply no longer drinkable. One of the most aged wines in the world is the Speyer wine bottle which was found in 1867 in the Rhineland-Palatinate region of Germany. It was discovered during an excavation of a Roman grave from the 4th century. The Speyer wine bottle Is 1650 years old and once found has been on display in the same place for 100 years. The bottle is exhibited in the Pfalz Historical Museum, located in the city of Speyer, Germany.
The oldest wine bottle in the world contains a whitish liquid which is unknown if it’s still wine or not. The liquid was kept sealed with wax and olive oil which is most likely why it survived for this long. Now, museum curators are considering opening the bottle to determine if the wine is still in optimal condition to be tasted by an expert.
