Well, in da 2nd map of the first adventure, u need wine for Hercules. Early on, when i got a gift of wine, i was short room for 4 wine. Now i don't know how to get more and i have tried demanding and sending gifts. Please help, I am VERY frustrated w/this.

....Everybody knew that Thebes must have lots of wine ready before Hercules comes... and wine was not available anywhere. Allies have heard about it, too, did their best, and Calydon was able to get the wine somewhere and gifted it to the city in two shipments...

The 2 shipments came.... but i only had enuff room for sum and they witheld 4 wine. Huh. I've tried giving them gifts (even the rebels) requesting/demanding wine, and they send fleece and money and oil all time but I NEED WINE! Can anyone help me?

I think the only thing you can do is restarting the episode and try again...

Did you have the autosave feature turned on?It would be easy to restore the game from a most recent autosave history file...Though I know that many players like to turn it off to speedup the game...

Besides,from my experience of the demo,I think the game had scripted certain limits like how many requests you can made from a city or how fast you can meet a certain goal...If you did it too fast,there would be extra obstacles ahead of you,as in your case,that city can only supply you with 32 wine and no more.Always keep some extra space for gifts and tributes,check before you click "accept",otherwise you can choose "postphone" and build extra storage spaces,they'll try to deliver the gift at the beginning og the next month.

I think you also get a chance to postpone the gift for a month to give you time to get a storage yard up & running. Failing that, the only other way to get the wine is from Eleusis. You have to import wood & give it to them in large (16 plank) quantities. Eventually when you click on the open hand it will say 'request wine' rather than 'demand wine'. Cities will never give you goods if it says demand.
