Behbeit el-Hagar had vineyards in Ancient Egypt since the reign of Amenophis the 3rd. This city housed a temple of Aset which is believed to have rivaled Philae. Wine is an important offering in Ancient Egypt and to Reconstructionists today.

Wine is linked to the Eye of Heru -- which is a symbol of perfection--and is used interchangeably in offering liturgy. One example is Green Heru Eye. Wine is shown offered in nw-pots or sometimes an offering bowl with a cow, lotus and papyrus on it. The nw-pots are small, jugular pots held one in each hand. Presenting wine to the Netjer is called "rdit irp" in Ancient Egyptian.

Different liturgies of wine offerings are found all over walls, stelas and obelisks of Kemetic temples. The Ancient Egyptians exalted the ecstatic effect wine offered, but warned against excess use. Wine has been said to symbolize joy in measured amounts in Ancient Egypt.
