Greek Wines with Konstantinos Lazarakis MW Part 1
This show was published 20 June 2014
Konstantinos tells us about the different grape varieties and regions of Greece, where 95% of the wine is consumed domestically and so can be hard to find in the UK. Many new grapes are being rediscovered every year but there are 200 indigenous grape varieties so far identified but in the market there are closer to 50 varietals available. There are also the international varieties being planted. We hear about the appellation system in Greece with the top tier being the PDO (POP) and second tier is PGI (more akin to Vin de Pays quality). Finally we talk about the traditional Greek wine, Retsina.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
