Meditrina is a late Roman goddess of the healing powers of wine. She is said to be the daughter of Asclepius.

Her festival, the Meditrinalia, is celebrated on October 11. On that occasion, old wine is mixed with the new vintage, part of which is offered as a libation, and a part is consumed as a physick to cure all ailments.
