What did the ancient Greeks use wine for?
It’s true that ancient Greeks and Romans mixed water and wine—but technically they were putting wine into their water more than they were putting water into their wine. Back then, wine was seen as a way to purify and improve the taste of the (often stagnant) water source.
Did ancient Greeks drink red or white wine?
Ancient Greek writers referred to wine as ‘sweet’, ‘dry’ or ‘sour’. There were white wines and black wines (equivalent of red wine today). Sour wines were most likely produced with unripe grapes and had heightened acidity. Sweet and dry wines were exactly like wines today made with either white or red wine grapes.
