European wines


The New Wines of Greece are truly European wines. This is not just an issue of provenance but a matter relating to style and quality. Under that light, Greek wines are not just European, but they are a part of the premier league of European wine, belonging to the same class as Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German and Austrian wines. They are wines expressive of their distinctive and historic terroirs, bearing the all the hallmark characteristics of their Old World provenance.

Wine production is an agricultural business that demands time. Generations are needed to identify the blessed spots of a region, to evaluate a grape variety and the optimum vineyard sites for it. A prerequisite for such a task is small scale production patterns, in order to deal with the irregularities inherent to a vineyard. So, European wine producers use both their heritage and experience to fully exploit their quality potential, making wines full of individuality. On the other hand, a large part of New World enterprises are too young, too large or too infatuated with market trends or return on investment to meet such challenges. In addition, European wines are rare in nature – they are produced by unique and finite terroirs that determine the limited production potential. Hence, the New Wines of Greece are a must-try for all people wishing to explore and taste the wines of the essential vineyards, the grand terroirs of Europe and the world.
