Winemaking and wine culture in Greece share an illustrious history that goes back thousands of years, evidenced by ancient winemaking artifacts that have been uncovered by archeologists and the impressive stone sculptures of Dionysus, the passionately revered god of wine. The Greek climate’s winning combination of ample sun, minimum rainfall and abundant poor soil sets the stage for the serious growing of quality wine grapes, while the regions indigenous grape varieties allow the wines to be some of the world’s most unique and interesting.
Today’s winemakers in Greece, with a nod to antiquity, are blending the use of the country’s indigenous varieties with modern winemaking technology to create wines that are not only memorably unique but also elegant and refined, with quality being at an all-time high in the region. In short, when it comes to wine, today’s Greece in in a period of enthusiasm, reinvention and experimentation, and thus far to great success.
