Mensagem: 

They watered the loaves of bread down with the very best wine available in the house.

Must have been a very young wine as it was made that day.

By the way I don't think in those days they had labels on the bottles or earthen cans.

Labels may be interesting to read. The other day I read about a wine which was claimed to have , among other things,  'uma boca prolongada' .

Must be a nice wine to water sardines down with.
