Greek Wine; Classic Region, Natural Style: A Wine Tasting

Thursday, March 7th
6:30 to 8:30 pm

 

Join us for a fantastic tasting of our March wine club selections as we continue our journey to the oldest wine regions with a focus this month on the wines of Greece. Greece is often considered the birthplace of Western civilization, and archaeological evidence suggests that wine has been made in some parts of Greece for more than 4000 years. We will make stops in various Greek wine regions, including the volcanic islands of Santorini and Limnos, the rugged plateaus and valleys of the Peloponnese Peninsula, and the mountainous region of Macedonia. This is one tasting you do not want to miss!

 

Featuring Wines From:

1. Mikro Ktima Titos:

Mikro Ktima Titos is located on a small island called Mikra Thira, which is situated across the famous Santorini (Thira) caldera. The place is known for producing extraordinary wines due to its unique location. The island was circular close to 4,000 years ago, but after a volcanic eruption, half of it sank into the sea, leaving behind Mikra Thira.

2. Savvoglou-Tsivolas: 

Savvoglou-Tsivolas is a group of wine producers who own around 20 hectares of vineyards in various regions such as Agios Dimitrios, Kaspaka, Sardes, Dafni, Plaka, and Kontopoulio. The vineyards are privately owned or in cooperation with other wine growers. The cultivated grape varieties mainly include Muscat of Alexandria, Limnio, and small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Fokiano.

3. Kelesidis: 

Kelesidis is a family-run winery that was established in 1998 by Konstantinos Kelesidis and his wife, Maria. The winery is located in the Xinomavro wine region at Giannkochori, Imathia, with 45 acres of vineyards. Kelesidis’s Estate produces wines from organic grapes, mainly the Xinomavro variety, which is known for its distinct flavor, aroma, and taste.

4. Canava Chrissou:

Canava Chrissou Estate is located on the island of Santorini and is run by celebrated winemaker Yiannis Tselepos. The estate has privately owned vineyards in Pyrgos, Emporio, and Megalohori, totaling 12 hectares. The Chrissou family had a vision to revive the old Canava, and Yiannis Tselepos joined them in 2014 to make it happen. 

5. Tselepos:

Tselepos is an estate founded in 1989 and is located in Tegea, Arcadia, in the Peloponnese. The estate’s vineyards lie at an altitude of 750 meters and have sandy clay soil with schist and limestone. The estate’s main goal has always been to produce the highest quality wines while trying to highlight the enormous potential of the indigenous varieties and each microclimate (terroir).
