The Greek wine industry is, in our opinion, starting to look really interesting and there are now some truly exciting and individual Greek wines available. There is a small band of very determined and talented winemakers who are making the wine world aware of their existence. We can remember when Retsina and Demestica were the only Greek wines available, and we certainly would not drink them now! Greece is a very diverse country with some great terroir and over 300 grape varieties most of them unheard of, but some of which have the potential to produce world class wines – Assyrtiko, Malagousia, Aghiorgitiko and Xynomavro already are.
Since their wine industry is so newly established they have some of the most modern wineries in the world and some highly skilled wine makers who have gained experience in other wine producing countries. We list wines from the top three producers in Greece and we strongly recommend that you try their wines.
