According to Sofacle Bacchus - the god of agriculture and wine (from the Greek Dionysus) - was fascinated by our Italian country.
In the ancient time the Roman people was able to steal the secrets of winemaking and cultivation techniques from ancient Etruscans, Carthaginians and Greeks.
The Romans used and experimented different tecquinques:
- terraced cultivation;
- vine cultivation woven into the canes;
- fermentation of wine in terracotta pots.
In ancient Roman times the wine was diluted with water.
Plinio il Vecchio - a Roman Philosopher - mentioned that there were 80 different types of wine.
But the viticulture developped more during the mediaval age, where the wine was not more considered a drink for the Roman high class, but it became a drink for every class, plus it was not more diluted with water anymore.
