The wine scene in Greece has undergone considerable changes, especially since the great sovereign debt crisis. Not least the weakness of the domestic market has forced wineries to increasingly compete on the international stage. This has not harmed the quality. In addition, the next generation of Greek winemakers has been able to gain experience at first-class wineries around the globe and is gradually returning home with new ideas and a wealth of know-how.
However, this does not necessarily mean a focus on international grape varieties - in fact, the opposite seems to be the case. Even if good qualities are produced from all varieties: It is particularly exciting when autochthonous grape varieties are involved. Ideally, you then have to deal with wines that you can't find anywhere else.
