Who is the god of wine?

Not that I want to start a religious discussion here, or take powers away from the pope, but during the early Greek and Roman times, there actually was a defined god for wine.  I mean, who would not want to be the god of wine?  I certainly wouldn't mind, adding that to my resume :)
But back to the god of wine; some people may say, I know the answer - Bacchus!  But that is just the more known, roman god of wine, not the only one ever holding this great title.  The Greeks say, the true god of wine was Dionysus.  Dionysus was also known to be the god of agriculture and theater.  Legend has it, that he assisted men in freeing themselves from themselves.  How?  Thru the consumption of wine :)
