The ‘Ancient Egypt’s Wine Rebirth’ EGYWINE Project is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action post-doctoral grant financially supported by the European Commission (H2020-MSCA-IF-2015).
EGYWINE Project addresses the viticulture origins, winemaking and preservation of the ancient Egyptian wines, and the diffusion of the Egyptian wine culture legacy to Europe.
