The World’s Oldest Bottle of Wine and Where it was Found

The world’s oldest wine bottle is believed to date back to the year 325. It was found near the town of Speyer, Germany, in 1867.  Believed it or not, it is unopened and contains 1.5 liters of liquid, which makes it a magnum. The bottle was discovered during an excavation of a 4th-century Roman nobleman’s tomb which contained the bodies of a man and a woman. The man, believed to be a Roman Legionnaire, was holding the bottle. No doubt to take with him on his journey to the afterworld. The bottle is on display at the Historical Museum of Pfalz, Germany. If I had the chance to taste it, would I?  Mmmm…no.
