← Back to: List of phobias
Oenophobia (from oenos, Greek for wine) is the fear of wine. The most common reason why people fear wine is because they contain alcohol, which is a toxin that could cause unpleasant effects. People suffering methyphobia (fear of alcohol) would fear the wine and beer (zythophobia). Sufferers would not drink wine while avoiding people who are drinking wine as they worry that drinking wine may make them act unpleasantly to them.
