#DrinkGreekWineWeek – what do you have in your glass #winelover?


We all heard about Greece’s financial crisis, haven’t we? So, let’s talk instead about something that is close to our heart: WINE

#DrinkGreekWineWeek. What is it?

“Wine knows no boundaries, religion, sex or colour. Wine unites and creates long-lasting friendships from all walks of life, across the whole globe. In a difficult time for my country, Greece, the #winelover community, through an initiative by Luiz Alberto, Brad Smith and myself, decided to show support for the Greek people through #DrinkGreekWineWeek. This is an initiative aimed at motivating #winelover-s all over the world to drink Greek wine every day of this week – and share a photo on social media, for everyone else to see and follow their example. So far, the response by everyone has been overwhelming. Thank you, fellow #winelover-s for your support of Greece and Greek wine! It means a lot to all of us!” => Ted Lelekas, #winelover

I have been only a couple to times to Greece, but their amazing hospitality and warmth made me feel really at home. You will not find people with a bigger heart than the Greeks. They will share with you whatever they have. Even in very difficult times like these…

If you have seen it yet, last year we – #winelover-s – had an opportunity to discover Nemea, the land of Agiorgitiko is king, and queen… Here is the video:

Here some of the stories that have been shared the past few days:

There are so many wine styles to choose from. So many beautiful stories behind them… If you don’t good old Xynomavro, you probably haven’t had one of the best wines of the planet. And they don’t break the bank either! They are great values… perfect wines for a #winelover!


And what can be better than a glass of Assyrtiko from Santorini this summer? Probably a bottle of it… :)

So… what is in your glass this week, #winelover?
