Greek Wine Used To Fight Fires  Add/Read Comments

Snooth Wine Search:


Greek wine has never really taken off in the UK; despite being a popular holiday destination and a plunge by Oddbins a few years ago. There are two specialist Greek wine importers operating on the internet that I am aware of - Yamas Wines and Vickbar Wines.

The Tetramythos estate (not stocked by either of the two specialists) in the northern Peloponnes has reported severe damage. It has been reported that numerous vineyards have been destroyed and where local authorities have run out of water wine has even been used to fight the blaze.

There will also be the worry that burnt smoky notes will be picked up in the flavours of wines produced across the region. Similar, I expect, to the concerns in Australia last year (?) after their serious bush fires.

This could be a ploy by the Greeks to sell more wine. It would be a good marketing idea.
