Greek wines are quickly becoming the next big thing in wine. For some it's been for a while, but now the real fun is kicking in. And that is due to two main reasons. First and most important, the next generation of winemakers in Greece, have really figured it out. What grapes to grow, how to do so and techniques adapted to their climate are some key factors. The second reason is accessibility. Greek wines are now widely available for us consumers. You don't have to backtrack too many years to see a slim list of wines possible for us to buy.
There are a couple of leading wineries for you to watch out for. Number one is Karamolegos. They are in a league of their own. But their wines range in the more expensive category. Here I'd highly recommend you try:
A.Karamolegos '34' 2019 - at 349kr or the wildly fantastic
A.Karamolegos Louri Platia 2017 at 747kr.
The first coming in at 93p and the second at 97p.
The other winery I highly recommend, which holds or pick of the week, is Thymiopoulos Outstanding wines, and some at a more affordable price.
Our wine of the week is Atma White 2020. Sort of an introduction to greek wines. It's very light and floral, and easy to drink. A perfect wine to start exploring the wonderful wine country of Greece.
