This book is as you might expect from someone with the enthusiasm to write about wines from Greece. In the world of wine, Greece should stand out among the best given its history but sadly the industry was for many years undervalued & affected by the turbulent history suffered.
Tasting wine is a very personal matter and whilst we may follow the so called experts who are effusive about all manner of attributes the author here provides a very down to earth review by producers & label.
It is a concise volume so hits most of the well known labels but obviously misses some of the lesser known gems.
I have tried quite a few of the wines and comparison with the unbiased reviews is very fair.
For visitors to Greece it will provide a good guide of what to look for in tavernas & restaurants and for those looking to source Greek wines in the UK it will give you a lot more information to base a search on.
