Gaga for Greece

  • The Cheese Shop of Salem (map)

(Note: Our tasting on Saturday has little to do with Gaga, except we love Gaga AND Greek wine.) We have six new Greek wines for you to taste on Saturday. Unified in 1830, Greece is made up of over 3000 islands, and some of these Mediterranean utopian isles are the ‘real-deal’ for wine growing. Vineyards thrive in long, dry summers, and short, mild winters, and ample sunshine abounds throughout the coastal climates atop mountainous countryside. Made since the 7th century BC, wine continues to be imperative to Greek society, and it’s impossible to separate Greek culture from wine. Wine is the epicenter of Greek culture. As stated in The World Atlas of Wine, “The modern winescape of Greece is even more exciting than most because it holds such potential for going backwards as well as forwards in time.” Greece’s history is what shapes it’s future winescape. Read on here for the Gaga for Greece line-up this Saturday!
