Dear fellow wine lovers,
For March I'll be doing a virtual wine tour of Greece's Peloponnesus peninsula, retracing the route to some of the wineries that we visited last summer as well as one that we didn't. The Peloponnesus could be seen as the Tuscany of Greece, home to some of the country's most iconic wine-growing regions and grapes including Nemea and Mantinia, Moscofilero, Roditis and Agiorgitiko, respectively.
After I only did red wines in February, the Peloponnesus tasting series will include a full range of good sparkling, white, rosé and red wines.
The line-up also includes some of my all-time favorite Greek wines, wines that I was drinking regularly long before I started selling them. You may already know some of them but I doubt that you know all of them:
You can read full details about each wine under their individual listings here: https://www.terremielicieli.com/category/peloponnesus.
- The méthode traditionnelle dry sparkling Amalia Brut from Tselepos,
- The acclaimed biodynamic Roditis Retsina from Tetramythos,
- The fruity-floral Moscofilero by George Skouras,
- The amazing 14-18h rosé by Gaia,
- and two rich, red Agiorgitikos from George Papaioannou and Constantin Gofas in Nemea.
For a change, the tastings will be on a series of Wednesdays--the 10th, 17th and 24th of March--in celebration of a Swedish tradition of Lillördag, or "Little Saturday" that I've decided to adopt to help everybody mentally survive the last month (?) of our collective lockdown.
To sign up, just order the Peloponnesus Discovery Box on my shop and I will automatically send you the invitations for the virtual tastings. (Please order by the 3rd of March at the latest if you want to be sure to get your wines in time for the first tasting on the 10th!).
Reminder: Last days to register for the Sardinian charity wine tasting on the 27th of February
My next wine tasting -- on the 27th of February -- will be a collaboration with FACE, a charity that supports abandoned babies, orphans and street children.
We will be drinking two good Sardinian wines, the white, mineral Perlas from native Sardinian Nuragus grapes, and the rich red Perdera from a blend of three Sardinian red grape varieties, Monica, Carignano del Sulcis and Bovale Sardo.
If you are interested in discovering some good wines and doing good at the same time, sign up here!
Of course, my web shop is always open and is now searchable by country, grape variety, producer, taste and other criteria.
I hope to see you at a tasting again soon!
