The Greek wine industry is some 4,000 years old and has gone through much over time. Today it is a mix of tradition and modern, from the grapes to the methods, hence a portfolio that extends from dry to sweet, across reds, whites and rosés. Macedonia produces rich tannic wines, the Peloponnese fresh reds and acidic whites and the Aegean Islands, dry whites or the sweet Muscat wines of Rhodes and Samos. Then there is Retsina (mainly from Attica), ever popular. There is no easy guide to Greece but there are some good wines and increasingly well-known grape varieties.
