This week leading U.S. wine writer and television personality Ray Isle recommends Boutari Santorini for pairing with Grilled seafood.

“Generally speaking,” he writes, “richer, oakier white wines don’t work well with shellfish. Go for something light and bright, like the citrusy, minerally white wines of the Greek island of Santorini… Boutari [one of the] top producers.”

Boutari “a cut above the crowd” — Chicago Tribune

May 17, 2012

Here’s what the Chicago Tribune, one of the leading U.S. daily newspapers, had to say yesterday about Boutari:

“Since the 1970s, Boutari has done more than any winemaker in Greece to revive dead or dying winemaking regions and wineries. It makes wine from all over the country, almost to a bottle both delicious and reflective of place.”

@EricAsimov on “Adventures in New Greek Reds”

May 9, 2012

Many do not realize that Greece is a mountainous country and enjoys a “continental climate” in many growing areas, like the Peloponnese (pictured above) where red wines like Nemea are produced.

“Indigenous red grapes represent a new wave of Greek wines now available in the United States,” writes top U.S. wine writer Eric Asimov in today’s edition of The New York Times. “While whites remain the most familiar Greek wines (it’s wonderful this year to see more restaurants serving assyrtiko by the glass), Greece also offers a fascinating extension of the spectrum of world reds.”
