The Ancient Greeks introduced vines such as Vitis vinifera and made wine in their numerous colonies in Italy, Sicily, southern France,
and Spain. In the Mycenaean period, wine took on greater cultural, religious and economic importance. Wine was almost always diluted, usually with water (or snow when the wine was to be served cold). The Greeks believed that only barbarians drank unmixed or undiluted wine.(Source and more info about Greek wine on wikipedia). The Greek modern wine technology is proud of enormous improvement.
