Balkan Peninsula

Bush_training_of_unstaked_Greek_grape_vinesThe wines of Greece and the Balkan Peninsula are never going to form the backbone of any winelist, but viticulture in the region goes back millennia and features many obscure grapes and winemaking techniques. If you’re willing to take a bit of a punt, you will discover some really distinctive and truly excellent booze. The Republic of Macedonia is home to Vranec, a dark skinned, full bodied grape akin to a bigger Malbec and the wines of Santorini can hold their own against all but the very finest Chablis
