One Commentator says "wine was subject to fermentation and was diluted with water between 1/3 to 1/10 of its strength.

Because of climate and circumstances even new wine fermented quickly and had an inebriating effect if not mixed with water.

because of a lack of a water purification process wine mixed with water was also safer to drink than water alone.

While the Bible condemns drunkeness ,it does not necessarily condemn the consumption of wine."
