The Speyer wine bottle (or 'Römerwein') is a sealed vessel - presumed to contain liquid wine - and so named because it was unearthed from a Roman tomb found near Speyer, Germany. It is the world's 'oldest bottle of wine.'

The Speyer wine bottle was originally found in 1867, in what is now the Rhineland-Palatinate region of Germany, near the town of Speyer, one of the oldest settlements in the area. The bottle has been dated between 325 and 350 AD, and is the oldest known unopened bottle of wine in the world.
