Greek wine is probably the oldest or one of the oldest wines ever produced. Wine was so important in ancient times. People traded and bartered with wine and it played important roles in many ceremonies and rituals. There are stories of Dionysus, who was the god of wine in Greek culture, which date back to before recorded history. There are many different types of Greek white wines available. Some of the better white wines come from the regions that have volcanic soil. Retsina is sometimes categorized as a white wine, but to me it should be in a category of its own. Retsina was originally one of the ancient wines produced before better storage techniques were introduced in wine production. What the Greeks used to do is seal the amphora with pine resin to prevent oxygen from getting in and spoiling the wine. The pine resin often changed the taste of the wine which gives it a unique taste. It is an acquired taste and is oily and pungent. There are many white wines like Elios and Rubin that are made from varietals like Vranac.

90 Points - Wine & Spirits "A touch pink, this Moschofilero stands out for the juxtaposition of its delicate florality and stony, salty minerality. The combination is mouthwatering, firm without being weighty, bringing to mind an image of Mantinia's cool, stony moonscape with flowering peach trees. It will make an elegant companion to light white fish."

The wine is brilliant, crystal-clear, white-yellow color with green tints. A fresh wine with an intense floral and fruity bouquet dominated by aromas of white rose, melon and citrus. It is well-balanced and fresh, with intense flavor and long aromatic aftertaste (orange blossom, grapefruit).
