The Real Greek is bringing the unique Greek grape varieties to the UK with the launch of its dedicated Greek wine menu, featuring a selection of 19 wines from Greece’s finest artisan winemakers.
The Real Greek will allow Brits to experience the taste and aroma of the country’s unique vintages, showcasing a variety of indigenous wines, each with their own distinctive style and tasting notes, that are produced in the region.
Wine has always been an integral part of Grecian culture and gastronomy, with the ancient Greeks pioneering new methods of viticulture and wine production.
The menu will feature 19 bottles of Greek wine. Alongside these 19, five vintages from Italy will be available. In total there are eleven white, four rosÃƒÂ© and nine reds.
Each Greek wine on the menu is produced using artisan methods, so only the very best grapes are selected for each bottle.
The Real Greek’s Own Wines
The menu features four of The Real Greek’s own branded wines with two whites and two red, showcasing unique Aegean grape varieties:
Athiri White Ã¢â‚¬â€œ produced from a refreshing white grape grown in a vineyard on the border region of Halkidiki, the wine has pleasant aromas of white flowers and fruit, with a medium body
Moschofilero White Ã¢â‚¬â€œ made from grapes grown in a small vineyard on the high plateaus of the Mantinia region, in the Peloponnese, this white wine is characterised by its intense floral aromas, which are aromatic and light in the mouth and provide a refreshing finish with an elegantly spicy hint
Agiorgitiko Red Ã¢â‚¬â€œ produced from local grape growers in the Peloponnese, Agiorgitiko is the most famous red grape variety in Greece. It is grown at an altitude between 250 and 400 metres, creating a perfectly balanced bottle of wine with notes of sweet spices and a fruity after taste
Xinomavro Red Ã¢â‚¬â€œ made in Naoussa in the North of Greece, this unique medium- bodied and vibrant ruby red wine, has a scent of ripe red berries and notes of sweet Herbs
The menu also features a number of wines from Greek brands, including the Abaton Agioritiko White, a unique white wine produced by monks at the St. Panteleimon Monastery on Mount Athos, a protected site that only they can visit.
The wines are available in a 175ml glass, 500ml carafe
