Hello!

I am new to the forum. Glad to e-meet you all. I am planning to head to Greece this summer and I was wondering if any of you have tried any Greek wines recently. Visiting Santorini is at the top of my list :) I've also been told that you can find great wine around the Peloponnese, especially in Monemvasia. I'll try to see if I can combine both.

I'd really appreciate it if you can share your experience with Greek wine.

I have limited experience with Greek wines, but I can tell you that I have enjoyed Santorini Assyrtiko wines (white) better than the Assyrtiko/Athiri blends. Domaine Sigalas is good. The only red I know is from the Xinomavro grape, a red called Naoussa made by Boutari. The regular bottling is good and the "Grande Reserve" is worth the extra money.

This is an old article and the importer mentioned is no longer in business, but it might serve as an overview of some different Greek wines. http://lifeattable.com/greek-wine-reviews/

Highlights for me include Santorini whites -- which I imagine taste even better while on Santorini -- as well as Agiorgitiko, the Greek Sangiovese (cherries, good acidity) and Xinomavro, the Greek Nebbiolo.

My favorite winery is actually up in Thrace, the northeast part of the country, called Domaine Kikones.
