Attempts to show that modern terminology and considerations, in the making, classification, marketing and enjoyment of wines, are maybe not so new as some of us today think they are. Shows, with original translations from Greek sources, that 2,000 years or so ago, types of comments and opinions about given wines were much the same as they are today. Suggests that modern approaches to marketing wines might find attitudinal changes reflected in these ancient deliberations helpful to them today.
