Drink Greek at The Wines of Greece Roadshow

Opa! The Wines of Greece Roadshow is back!

Now in its fourth year, the annual event sees Greece’s leading winemakers and wine experts land on Australian shores to host a range of educational events for the trade and consumers.

This year, more than 30 wineries and 100 wines from across Greece will be on show, from established terroirs to up-and-coming regions.

Greek Master of Wine, Yiannis Karakasis MW, will be hosting trade masterclasses in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, alongside a range of other events exploring Greece’s distinct terroirs, indigenous varieties, Greek rosé and natural wines. This includes exploring native wine styles such as xinomavro, agiorgitiko and limniona.

Attendees will learn about the diverse winemaking landscapes of Greece and how this terroir is reflected in the wines, from the limestone soil in Nemea and Cephalonia and schist soil in Naoussa and Rapsani, to granite and volcanic soils in the Aegean islands.

Trade will have the opportunity to sample a selection of wines from visiting winemakers during an exclusive preview at Wine of Greece’s premier event Oinofilia, at Sydney’s Commune on Saturday 23rd June and Melbourne’s Collingwood Town Hall on Sunday 24th June.

Yiannis Karakasis MW and wine expert Grigoris Michailos will also be running private masterclasses for retailers, distributors, bars, hotels and restaurant groups while they’re here. To express your interest in a private tutorial at your venue, contact emmahutton@liquidideas.com.au.
