The winters in ancient Greece were cold and wet. This was better for farming. They could grow olives and grapes. They get about 2.2 inches of precipitation around November. The average temperature is 64 degrees. Their summers were warm and dry. Summer in Greece leads to drought which kills about every plant. Grapes and olives are the few ones to survive drought.
