Wine in Christianity

vino-cristianesimo

In Christianity, wine is used in a sacred rite called the Eucharist, which originates in the Gospel account of the Last Supper (Gospel of Luke 22:19) describing Jesus sharing bread and wine with his disciples and commanding them to “do this in remembrance of me.”

It spread then all over Europe as a religious symbol, and there was need for huge quantities, as everybody was drinking wine during the Eucharist, till the 13th century, when the use was limited to the officiant priest.
