A new age has arrived in the restaurant world for Greek Wines. For the past 22 years Wine & Spirits Magazine has surveyed the top fifty most popular wines sold in restaurants every year. This year Greek wines made the list for the first time. There were three Greek wines: Boutari, Skouras, and Spiropoulos that managed to crack the top 50 list, which puts them in the same league as wines like Veuve Clicquot and Fonseca.
One interesting thing to note about wine in Greece today is that they have more varieties than any other country other than Italy, making it a fantastic destination for wine enthusiasts. The senior editor of Wine & Spirits, Tara Thomas stated that Greek Wines “ought to be a source of excitement for a long time, as it is still so much in a period of exploration and discovery.” There is much to celebrate for Greek wines and wine enthusiasts as a new region has entered the stage of great wines.
