Are you ready to get down with Dionysus? This Tues Tasting (Oct 15) in honor of Mobile’s Greek Fest, we raise our glasses with 3 tasty wines from the home of democracy, philosophy, Greek mythology, and great wine. Opa!
- Sigalas Santorini Assyrtiko-Athiri — Retsina this is not! Santorini is famous for its dry white wines (and training its grapes to grow in basket shapes) and this combination of 2 regional grapes creates luscious flavours of ripe peach and nectarine with notes of orange, jasmine and a touch of salinity on the finish. $23 btl, $9 btg
- Zoe Rosé – This delicate blush made from native Greek grapes (Aghiorghitiko and Moscofilero) is harvested on the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece and benefits from the warm sea breezes: soft floral aromas of rose and jasmine are followed by ripe flavors of cherries, raspberry and a touch of sweet grass and chalk. $14 btl, $6 btg
- Skouras Saint George Nemea – This ruby red made from 100% Aghiorghitiko (translated as “St. George’s grape”) is fermented in French oak to highlight the soft fruit flavours of blackberry, mulberry and strawberry with a touch of cinnamon and anise on the finish. $17 btl, $8 btg
