Huh?  Amphora were used to hold, haul, and store everything including 
wines and were ceramic jars/jugs.  Used well into period and certainly 
way way way pre-period.

Whole shipwrecks laden with Amphora that had been filled with wine have 
been found.

Go to the Aphoras project at 
http://www.chass.utoronto.ca/amphoras/cgi-bin/well?    and enter  wine 
as a search term and you'll get plenty of documentation references.
