Greece

The history of wine in Greece is especially rich, originating as early as the 7th century BC and on throughout Classical Greece and the Roman era. The expansion of viticulture to the rest of the Mediterranean is credited to the Greeks. While other cultures at the time of the Ancient Greeks drank wine, beer or "wine" made from dates or the lotus plant was the norm. In Greece, however, wine formed the culture's identity and was worshiped in the form of the god Dionysus. Wine was so significant a factor in the trade of ancient Greek cities that many featured wine-related images on their coins.
