Other Greek grape varieties
Apart from the up-and-coming Greek varieties and their flagships (Assyrtiko, Moschofilero, Agiorgitiko and Xinomavro) there are also practically hundreds of other Greek grape varieties. All are vinifiable, whether they go towards vinification of monovarietals or are used as part of wine blends. Whatever the case may be, they contribute their character and diversity to the wines they yield, showcasing them as one-of-a-kind.
Some of them are extensively cultivated and are safely established. Some others are not. Still others are on the brink of extinction while some other Greek grape varieties have been rescued after concerted efforts by certain vine growers. With regard to obscure varieties, ongoing research, experimental plantings, micro-vinifications and fine tuning should show which ones show promising potential.
