Greek wine pairs well with Mediterranean cuisine in Hartford CT

Leeanne Griffin (left) is a former interactive journalist for The Hartford Courant turned freelance writer. At any point during the day, you can find her watching the Food Network (or Travel Channel’s ‘Man v. Food’), poring over cookbooks and online recipe databases, buying cheese and olive oil at Trader Joe’s or wrestling with bread dough. Oh, and searching for the best under-$15 bottles of wine in southern New England.

Author of the healthy-eating blog, Fun with Carbs, Leeanne Griffin is a big fan of Boutari. She and her husband recently visited Boutari while in Santorini on their honeymoon in 2009. 🙂

I wasn’t planning on drinking at lunch, but I took a quick look at the cocktail menu and my heart skipped a beat when I saw a Boutari Moschofilero on the wine list. We visited the Boutari winery in Santorini – the biggest one on the island – and thoroughly enjoyed our long tour and intense tasting session (the wine consultant asked us to score the wines and compare our results to professional ratings.)
