Where were the first wine cellars?

The Romans were a few of the first people to understand the benefit of keeping their wine underground in cellars. It was an all natural way to keep carefully the wines cool and keep it from spoiling. That is why so many wineries still store their products in casks and containers underground in caverns and caves.
