Microbiologically speaking, unknown wine is much safer than unknown water. Of the thousands of microorganisms now classified, only relatively few have been found growing in wine. This is due to the nearly antiseptic combination of alcohol and acids which occur in wine. Most microscopic organisms taken from contaminated water actually die if introduced into wine. It is from this phenomenon that wine has served in human health throughout Western civilization.
