Welcome to Greece

Greek wine dates back to as early as 4000 BC when the first vines were domesticated in northern Greece. Various civilisations perfected the techniques and Greece became the centre of the world of wine. Greek wine almost went out of existence during the 400-year rule of the Ottoman Empire. The Turks discouraged wine consumption and winemaking. Many winemakers were forced to abandon their vineyards and through the years, lost its status as winemaking power. But at the beginning of the 1970s, a handful of winemakers pushed hard to put back Greece back on the map as a world-class winemaking nation. Today, 80 per cent of the wineries are less than 20 years old. Greece has over 200 indigenous grape varietals, including Xinomavro, Assyrtiko and Agiorgitiko. As Greece is the only country using these grapes, they produce wines that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The terroir is rich and varied, from its spine of mountains to lush valleys and mineral-rich islands. The soil is fertile and well-watered, there is plenty of sun in the summer and warm autumns for the ideal ripening conditions
