Holiday Wines - Greece and Turkey
Mamma Mia here we go again with an exploration of the holiday wines of Greece and Turkey.
The Greeks have been making wine for thousands of years and were highly influential in spreading wine drinking culture. If however your experience of Greek wine has been limited to Retsina then you may be surprised to learn that the quality of Greek wine has never been higher with original and delicious wines made well from local grape varieties best suited to the local climate.
Equally Ancient Turkey may have been home to the first cultivated vines and now Turkish wine is beginning to gain deserved recognition. Its climatic variation means that there are a wide variety of styles on offer.
Join us and taste, alongside appropriate nibbles, how these two ancient cultures are creating a buzz in the wine drinking world with new and exciting wines.
