Greece

Wines from one of the oldest vineyard area's in the world

Despite Greece having some of the hottest vineyards in the world, which usually suggests red wine production, Greece makes a surprising amount of white....and excellent quality it is too!

The trick the Greeks use for whites is to exploit the microclimates in cooler sites in mountainous regions such as Nemea, or by benifitting from the maritime locations amongst the islands such as Santorini. Despite the difficult to pronounce varietals such as Agiorghitiko, Mavrodaphne, and Assyrtiko, the wines themselves are very approachable and on par with any other great wine producing regions of the world.
