Ganimede, the Cecubo wine sommelier

The cupbearer to gods of Olympus still watches over the lands of the Cecubo wine in Sperlonga

The oldest sommelier ever, came from Phrygia and used to pour nectar to the Gods.

“The king of the gods once burned with love for Phrygian Ganymede, and to win him Jupiter chose to be something other than he was. Yet he did not deign to transform himself into any other bird, than that eagle, that could carry his lightning bolts. Straightaway, he beat the air with deceitful wings, and stole the Trojan boy, who still handles the mixing cups, and against Juno’s will pours out Jove’s nectar”.

(Ovid, Metamorphosis, X, 155-161)
