Eating habits in ancient Greece. Tip-7: Wine


The most representative good of ancient’ Greeks culture was the wine. They really loved it. There was a huge variety of local wines.  Thus, the international trade, imports and exports flourished. It was accompanying all their meals. In one glass of wine the 2/3 was water, while as the day goes by the amount of the water is reduced.  Wine was also an essential part of many ancient rituals. It is impressive how much the wine was involved in ancient’ Greeks life.
