What kind of pleasures Romans had thanks to the wine – prof. André Tchernia, a French historian, archaeologist and researcher of ancient wines, tied to find it out. He produced a liquor according to a recipe from the Roman Empire.
“Experts who came to the tasting, agreed that it most resembles white grape wine from the French Jura or produced in the Andalusian Jerez” – says the French researcher. Apparently it was delicious!
