Greek wine and wine making is as ancient as the marble columns that line the Parthenon. Archaeologists have uncovered winemaking artifacts from Greece that date as far back as 1600 BC, as the area played an enormous role in wine trade. We can even credit the Greeks with establishing an appellation system to ensure quality and place of origin.

Today’s Greek winemakers, with a nod to antiquity, are working to bring Greek wine back into vogue. Updated winemaking technology blended with the nation’s 300 indigenous grape varieties (some of them ancient) has done much to elevate the modern-day perception of Greek viticulture. The Greek climate is also a winning combination: ample sun, minimal rainfall and abundant poor soil set the stage for some serious grape growing.

Greek wine does appear to have it all—history, climate and uniqueness.
