Noach “planted” himself in one set location on the earth, as opposed to the wandering Kayin, and planted a grape orchard there. His hope was that the wine he would thus produce would serve as an offering to G-d, just as wine would later serve for libations upon the Holy Temple altar. However, he failed dismally, and his hopes were dashed. Instead of offering the wine upon the altar, he drank of it and became intoxicated, ending up lying naked on the ground in disgrace.
