Greek White Wines

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    In his article for the Los Angeles Times (7.9.2008), Patrick Comiskey presents distinctive wines from Greece that are now for the first time widely available in the U.S. “For years, Greek wines were rarely seen here beyond the walls of Greek restaurants, but Greece has modernized its winemaking, improved its viticulture and devoted itself to the many indigenous varieties that have been cultivated for thousands of years. These varieties, made from ancient grape varieties, with lyrical names like Assyrtiko, Malagousia, Agiorghitiko and Xinomavro, are finally gaining recognition for being at once exotic and world class.”  Los Angeles Times: Greece is the word in white wines for summer; Secretariat General of Information: World Media on Greece – Food and Wine
