The history of wine


The history of wine
in ancient Greece


Ancient Greeks considered wine as an integral part of their lives. Dionysus was the god of wine and feasts were organized in his honour. They had conjured many myths associated with wine. The enormous economic importance of wine in ancient times  led to  legislative protection. In the museum of Thassos, there is a law engraved in marble dating back to the  5th century BC, which  is considered to be the first wine law and it regulated issues concerning harvest and sales. The earliest written evidence for transporting wine by sea is given by Homer in the Iliad. Ancient Greeks -as  wine lovers- used a wide variety of vessels associated with the use and transfer of wine,  such as amphoras, craters, cups, kantharous  etc.
