Event Description

The ancient cradle of Mediterranean wine making, Greece today is a source of distinctive, high-quality wines.  

Greece is different. Indigenous grape varieties grown in a variety of terroirs produce wines with a unique character

Over four weeks we will explore the wine regions from mainland highlands to sun kissed islands. From Cephalonia to Crete, Macedonia to Santorini. Discovering the A to X of unpronounceable Greek grape varieties from Assyrtiko to Xinomavro.

A special mixed case of 8 wines has been selected for us by Border Wines, online retailers specializing in Greek Wines from small, family producers.

The case of eight wines costs £142.99 Inc. free delivery. That represents a £10 discount exclusive to this course for a case of wines that you will not find elsewhere.

Numbers will be limited due to the scarcity of some of the wines. Click the link below to join the course and I will email a link to purchase the wines.
