The wine seems to be born with early civilizations, always present and indissoluble mixed in our mythologies. The ancients believed that wine was a civilizing drink while pagan religions have sacred the wine and made it a gift of God.
The archeological remains of our country confirm the wine culture since prehistoric times (3000-2700 BC). A.D. Xenopol, the renowned historian affirmed that the old homeland of the Dacians was a huge European wine region. This has been certified by the fact that ancients believed that this region was the birthplace of the god Dionysus (Greek) or Bacchus (the Romans).
