As you know, the poor Ancient Egyptians could not afford meat. That's like the President and his family being the only ones lucky enough to afford a hamburger! Why was the meat and wine so pricey? Well, in order to raise animals you need to have a place for them to sleep, food to eat, and workers to clean up after them. I guess Ancient Egyptians had were picky eaters when it came to wine. They either had grapes grown and made into wine at their homes, or imported their wine from a far away place. Both of which obviously weren't cheap.
