The name Koiné is a reference to the Hellenistic Greek dialect, which was common (κοινή = koine) to the various peoples of the ancient world from about 300 B.C. to about A.D. 300 for both Greek and Italians alike. Bacchanal’s hope with Koiné was to create a wine brand with a common language, for common people and with the extraordinary message of enjoying life.
