Greece, Glorious Greece

We have good news about Greece. Ok, it might not be what you’re thinking. We’re talking about their incredible wines, which are full of character and distinct, whether they hail from the mainland or from the myriad islands that sprinkle the Aegean Sea. This month, we’re focusing on the volcanic island of Santorini, which is a destination island known for its deep blue waters and distinct black, red, and white sand beaches. Winemaking in Santorini began around 3500 B.C., but it wasn’t until a ruinous volcanic explosion took place in 1600 B.C. that the island’s unique terroir began to take shape. The Assyrtiko grape, which thrives in rich, volcanic soils, is most prevalent on this island and is easily considered Greece’s most noble white variety. Although the majority of Santorini’s white wines are made from this venerable grape, you’ll also hear names like Athiri or Aidani, two native grapes that also manage to hold their own on this impressive slice of terroir. Santorini is not, however, only known for its whites. Red wines from Mavratragano and Mandilaria also abound. This month, treat yourself to a trip to Santorini for a look at this stable of Greek treasures-all without leaving home.
