New Wines of Greece Trade Tasting

If your idea of Greek wines is a rough and not so ready retsina of old, this upcoming event is set to challenge your perceptions.

New Wines of Greece will be bringing a contingency of Greek winemakers to Australia to showcase the newest and most innovative wines from the world’s oldest winegrowing region.


More than 20 winemakers, educators and grape-growers will visit Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide for a series of tastings, dinners and masterclasses that have previously only ever been held in the USA and Canada.

Over 90 wines will be on taste including indigenous varieties and Greek expressions of international classics spanning the wine regions of Greece, from the Peloponnese through to Santorini and the islands.

A series of masterclasses will also be held.
