The Greek oenologist Panagiotis Papagiannopoulos will not soon forget the morning of July 27, 2007. On the Peloponnese peninsula, devastating forest fires are raging. Papagiannopoulos is a partner of the Tetramythos wine estate, which was founded in 1999 and is located high up in the mountains near Aegialia. The fires are eating through this region as well. But the night before, firefighters sent the nervous estate owners home. No more danger, they said - and later departed for the village themselves, finally taking a break. In the morning, the 34-year-old vintner set out early for his winery. But it no longer existed. He looked at a pile of rubble burning brightly. The fire had come during the night.
