“In Vino Veritas Est” In wine there is the Thuth (Pliny the Elder)

From Blak Sea to Greece to Italy, and with the Roman legionnaires the vine was widespread all over the Roman Empire, for the Romans planting a vineyard was extremely symbolic, once you plant a vine you need 3 years to harvest it, the message was clear, we will not get away. 78 european vines are the genetic great-grandchildren of those vines.
