experts say Greek wine world’s best suited to food

“Greek wines tend to be less jammy and fruity & more about these wonderful secondary flavors of earthiness, minerality & herbaceousness”

Greek wine is criminally underrated, but an expert on the subject, Evan Turner of Boston’s Krasi Meze and Wine – wants to put it straight and let the world know there’s none better when it comes to being paired with a country’s food.

He told that most of the Greek wines that make it to the United States – mostly unadvertised with the little market, about 85 percent – are from producers no more than two decades old although Greek winemaking goes back 6.500 years.

“There are all these beautiful old vineyards sitting around in Greece,” said Turner, who said he’s been associated with Greece for some 40 years.
