The Romans were very fond of their wine, in fact they even had a god of wine and intoxication, Bacchus.
Bacchanalia, orgies in honor of Dionysus (Bacchus was known as Dionysus in Greek mythology), were introduced in Rome around 200 BCE. These infamous celebrations, notorious for their sexual and criminal character, got so out of hand that they were forbidden by the Roman Senate in 186 BCE.
