The land of Dionysus, the Greek god of the grape harvest, wine making and wine

Greece is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world and the first wine-producing territory in Europe. The earliest evidence of Greek wine has been dated to 6,500 years ago where wine was produced on a household or communal basis. In ancient times, it was transported throughout the Mediterranean, was held in high regard in Italy under the Roman Empire and fetched high prices in Europe.

 

Join us as importer Stephen Roussos guides us as we explore Greek wines. We’ll taste single varietals and blends; Assyrtiko, Sauvignon Blanc, Aidani Mavro, Cabernet Sauvignon, Agiorgitiko, Mandilaria and Monemvassia. And, we might even learn how to pronounce the grape names!

 

Join us Tuesday, May 9, 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
