Without democracy, there would be no elections. Without elections, there would be no candidates. And without candidates – like – maybe we should stop there and just raise a toast to those smart guys that thought up the concept 4,000 years ago.
Their discussions must have been helped by the great wines they produced in Greece then, and are even better now.
Greece has about 350 indigenous varietals, but your first lesson in modern Greek wine history is only learning about the four flagship grapes: Assyrtiko, Moschofilero (both whites) and Agiorgitiko and Xinomavro (both reds).
You get extra points if you can pronounce them (hint: the ‘g’ sounds like a ‘y’).
You can learn more about them and Greece by joining our online community.
Just click here, signup and you’ll receive our monthly newsletter AND have an opportunity to win $100 toward dinner at your favourite restaurant with Greek wine.
Our wines may not help you decide who to vote for, but they’ll certainly make it a lot more enjoyable.
