4.0 out of 5 stars Retsina Is Dead, 16 Nov 2006
This review is from: The Wines of Greece (Mitchell Beazley classic wine library) (Hardcover)
Greek wine has made great strides in the last twenty years, even more so in the last decade: to some, it may well be the best-kept secret of the wine world. Young, ambitious winemakers, educated at top schools abroad have been at the forefront of the new developments. This new blood explores the infinite possibilities Greece's variety of native grapes and terroir present for making good, and often great wine.

Lazarakis' book is a useful snapshot of the state of greek wine which comes at a convenient point in the industry's development. The book is well-written, providing an overview of the grapes planted in Greece -native and foreign- the regions, and the laws. Extensive producer profiles form a further part of the book. If you, like me, have been stunned by greek wine and seek a guide through the labyrinth (pun intended) of grapes and locations, this is most certainly a good buy. The only omission is the lack of elaboration on how to pronounce the grapes.

Lazarakis is Greece's first Master of Wine, which gives him impeccable credentials to write this book.

Just don't forget to buy the wines!
