Greek wine is making its way to Australia with over 20 winemakers showing off their native varieties at a series of trade and consumer tastings in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
One of the highlights of the winemakers showcase will include in-depth masterclasses on Greek wines led by Greece’s Master of Wine, Yiannis Karakasis. The masterclasses will be held in Sydney on June 19 at Establishment, in Adelaide on June 21 at Georges on Waymouth and in Melbourne on June 26 at Crown Towers.
There will be the opportunity for wine enthusiasts to sample the Greek wine at two of the events: First at Georges on Waymouth in Adelaide on June 21 and then at the Greek wine show, Oinofilia, at Melbourne’s Meat Market on Saturday, June 24.
“There is unprecedented demand for Greek wines with a 30 per cent increase in sales in Australia over the last two years,” Wines of Greece president Vangelis Argyris said according to openhousemagazine.net. “Our native grape varieties are leading this demand and we’re hoping to bring some new varieties in June that haven’t been widely seen in Australia before. We are thrilled Australia has fallen in love with Greek wines and so excited for this third tour in as many years.”
