wine is vido (revisited)

vido = wine (noun) (some things Google found for "vido": a common term; Vido and De Vido are unusual to uncommon last names which can be Italian; an unusual masculine first name; user names; VIDO brand Android tablets; VIDO (Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization)-InterVac is a research organization at the University of Saskatchewan; name of a small island of the Ionian Islands group of Greece; means vision, sight in Esperanto; names of places in Haiti and Portugal)

Word derivation for "wine":
Basque = ardo, Finnish = viini
Miresua = vido

My previous Miresua conlang word for wine was vari. There was nothing really wrong with that word, but I'm changing it because I'm going to make a word very similar next.

The word wine appears twice in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
"Have some wine," the March Hare said in an encouraging tone.

Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. "I don't see any wine," she remarked.

"There isn't any," said the March Hare.
