Wine is one of two luxuries, along with Incense, which is important for religion. First, the Goddess of Festivals belief nets a bonus 1 Culture and Faith on the tile, and second, the Monastery building grants an additional +1 Culture and Faith.

Wine is an alcoholic beverage made of fermented grapes. Humans have been happily creating wine for some 8,000 years. The practice is believed to have originated in the area near the modern Iranian-Georgian border. In many cultures, wine is believed to have mystical powers and is used in countless religious ceremonies. France is the (self-proclaimed) center of wine production on the planet, but she is facing stiff competition from other countries in Europe, as well as the USA, South Africa, South America, and Australia.
