“in 1205, Bishop Juan de Prejano established the food rations for all workers in the lands of the Albelda monastery in La Rioja, and they included wine for three meals a day. So, bread, cheese and wine were to be had at midday, bread and wine in the afternoon, and bread, meat, and wine in the evening.”
From The Finest Wines of Rioja by Jesus Barquin, Luis Gutierrez and Victor de la Serna.
