Athens has always been the motherland of the olive tree. The olive tree was a gift from the Goddess Athena to the Athenians and that is why olive oil is sacred to the Greek diet.
Wine has always been part of the Greek diet and remains so today. It is not just a matter of alcohol consumption, it was an important part of the Greek diet, and "their strength". Especially for the ancient Greeks, it was an integral part of their debates and always accompanied their philosophical discussions. So it would not be right to leave Athens without knowledge of the olive tree and wine.
