Now is your chance to discover the diversity of Greek regions in the Peloponnese, Macedonia and Aegean islands.  Taste thrilling minerally whites from native grapes:  Assyrtiko, Malagousia, Rhoditis, Moschofilero & Athiri - and succulent herby reds from Agiogitiko and Xinomavro - as well as international varietals like white Semillon or red Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
