WINE IN ANTIQUITY
There are countless stories about wine, much more than any other drink. He was devoted to laudatory odes, composed poems and treatises. Wine was attributed to healing properties, they were looking for truth in it, and in it they lost their heads.
The lack of reliable information about the emergence of winemaking gave rise to many assumptions. There are references to the vine even in Bible writings. After the World Flood Noah landed on the ground, and among the first of his actions was planting grapes.
