Drinks in Ancient Greece.
Wine, water, beer and honey mead were the main drinks in ancient Greece. Milk was rarely drank because drinking milk was considered barbaric. Wine was also usually watered down before being drank because it was considered barbaric to drink it straight. For Greeks wine was especially important at the symposia, which was a meeting of men for drinking, music and intellectual discussion. Greeks gave it medicinal properties, and there were even descriptions of proper and improper drinking. It is thought that much of the modern wine production practices today, are influenced by the practices of the ancient Greeks. Wine is also a very important part of Greek culture today. Gone are the days when Greece was only known for its retsina (wine that has had resin added to it). Today Greece has a high quality wine production using Greek grapes varieties that appear to be similar to the variety of grapes used in ancient times, and that are grown only in Greece.
