Karl Wurst - Partner / Buyer - @atlaswinesbrooklyn "There are so many Greek wines to love. What I think makes them so special is both the tremendous spectrum of flavors and styles which are entirely unique to Greece. The fact that these wines may not be as widely known as those from other parts of Europe is a missed opportunity for wine lovers everywhere. Having said that though, I feel like there is a growing excitement and curiosity for Greek wines and I see bright days in their future. Personally, I am thrilled to see, and taste, more natural wines coming from there, as well as the devotion to utilizing the tremendous variety of indigenous grapes." #Eklektikon #Brooklyn #quotes #interview #greekwine #NY #EternalGreek #winestore #answers #NaturalWine

Enjoying the complexity of orange, natural, biodynamic and zero-sulfites Black Label of @georgas_family from the Savatiano grape, indigenous to Athens and most planted grape of Greece. At @oveliapsistaria in Astoria - from a family winery at a family restaurant.

Like father, like son... Two serious oenologists in the same cellar: Bakis Tsalkos of @oenogenesis Winery represents the generation of winemakers that revived the Greek wine industry back in the 80's, and is credited with creating the newest winemaking region of Greece, Drama. Known as "the master of big, aged Greek wines", he is considered one of the greatest oenologists of Greece.
Alexandros Tsalkos, following on his father's footsteps, studied oenology in Montpelier and worked in Bordeaux before returning to Oenogenesis. With a global vision, being half French, Alexandros represents the new generation of Greek winemakers, with passion, innovative ideas, and an arsenal of indigenous and global grapes, and a fascinatingly diverse terroir.
Keep killing it!

Enjoying Monolithos rosé at kiki's (traditional Greek food)! The polydynamic sustainably grown Agiorgitiko grape expresses beautiful in this fresh and floral rosé vinification from @domainebairaktaris ! Pair with the octopus.. #Eklektikon #NaturallyGreek #EternalGreek #GreekWine #nyc #GreekRestaurant #Estiatorio #Kikis

Rosé season has started at Kyclades Estiatorio - East Village!
Rosé wine is some of the most versatile style for food pairing. So pair around with the delicious seafood menu at Kyclades!
- Monolithos rosé 2015 (Agiorgitiko 80% / Assyrtiko 20%): the sustainably grown grapes provide a blend of the fresh fruit of Agiorgitiko with the acidity kick of Assyrtiko. - Melanthia ORGANIC sparkling off-dry rosé 2016 (Black Muscat of Tyrnavos 100%): you probably haven't smelled anything quite like this; the explosive aromas of wildflowers and addictive bittersweet aftertaste, are a unique experience.
Yia mas!

"I love Greek wine because everyday there is something to discover. Grapes that have been forgotten but deserve to be much more well known."

We've been patiently waiting for this one and couldn't resist playing with our camera accordingly.. Sun red 2013 is in!
Indigenous grapes, grown organically (certified), vinified with indigenous yeasts and minimal intervention (unfiltered / unfined). From the @kontozisis.organic.vineyards in rural Karditsa, home of the very promising Limniona red grape with its unusually floral nose, blended with the serious, tannic and earthy #Xinomavro ("acid-black"). Yia mas!

Our favorite soup!

An ode to authentic complexity. That color and rich nose.. The promising Savatiano grape, via biodynamic viticulture and low yields, unfiltered, skin contact, 5 years in the barrel, "organic wine" and "No Added Sulfites" certification. By @georgas_family

Intense color on these healthy and vigorous Mandilari (Mandilaria elsewhere) grapes, in the dry, unsprayed, organic vineyards of @stilianouwines in Crete. Soon in the US, blended with Kotsifali, in a rosé vinification full of soul and juiciness.
Did you know the oldest wine press was discovered in Crete (Vathipetro) and is 3,500 years old?
