David Rosengarten visits Boutari

If you don’t know leading food writer David Rosengarten, you must have been living under a rock for the last 25 years.

Here’s his bio (lifted from his personal blog): “Journalist, television personality, and cookbook author, David Rosengarten has covered great food products, restaurants, wines, beer, coffee and tea, gastronomic travel destinations, and related subjects for over 25 years. He has written hundreds of articles and contributed hundreds of original recipes to publications such as Gourmet (where he was Restaurant Critic from 1996 to 2000), The New York Times, Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, Harper’s Bazaar, Departures, The Wine Spectator and Newsday. David is perhaps best known for his work as the host of Taste, the award-winning Food Network television show devoted to the principles of good taste in food and wine.”

David visited the Boutari winery in Naoussa in June and posted about his passion for the wines of Greece over at the Dean & DeLuca Gourmet Food blog. Here’s what he had to say…

My favorite traditional red wine in Greece is made in the northwest, not too far from Albania, from one of my favorite red-wine grapes in the world: Xinomavro. It is grown all over this Macedonian part of Greece, but the center of Xinomavro production is the town and area of Naoussa; luckily, Naoussa wines from producers such as Boutari are not hard to find in the U.S.

    It’s my favorite too. In a good vintage probably the most ageworthy wine for the money – just my opinion.
