Following the success of our previous Cheese & Wine Tasting event at the end of last year, we couldn’t help but organise another one as our first event for 2015!

During the event attendees were given the opportunity to try 8 Greek wines made with some widely popular and some less known indigenous grape varieties; Roditis, Aghiorgitiko, Moschofilero, Assyrtiko, Xinomavro, Mandilaria, Monemvasia and Malagouzia originating from some of the most famous wine producing regions in Greece; Peloponnese, Santorini, Naoussa, Drama and Paros.

Our expert sommelier; Uli Gambero, guided attendees through the intricacies of Greek wine and created tasteful matches between the wines and cheeses, also carefully sourced from all over Greece.

Here are the wines that were available at the tasting:

Tetramythos Retsina
