Did a man or a woman discover wine?


Did you know that wine was discovered by a woman? According to Persian mythology, she drank the fermented juice from grapes stored in a jar, went to sleep, and surprisingly woke up cured of a headache, instead of suffering from the world’s first hangover as one might have expected!
Wine became the drink of the gods, whether they were Egyptian, Sumerian, or Greek, and the early deities of wine were also often women, since they were also associated with fertility. The symbolism of wine, as well as its effect, became potent as it was adopted into religious ritual. Now that’s something you can’t say about beer or whisky!
