8 Bottle Mixed Case created for the wonderful Newcastle Wine School, showcasing the superb red and white Wines of Greece.
Greece has, in the last twenty years, transformed into a rising star of the wine world. It has a particularly rich history of wine making, stretching back at least to the 7th century BCE. Early Greek colonization led to the vine being taken to all parts of the Mediterranean, thus laying the foundations for viticulture across Europe.
