Wine writer Wes Marshall interviews Christina Boutari in Austin, Texas

Austin Chronicle wine writer Wes Marshall recently sat down with Christina Boutari for a chat about the history of the Boutari family of wineries and Greek wine in the world today.

“Christina was elegant and quite knowledgeable,” writes Wes, “and since Greek wines are still relatively unknown, it was a great experience to taste through some of her best. We tried five wines (they make dozens) and enjoyed how well they tasted with the cuisine at El Naranjo. Her Moschofilero ($17) was a delightful white quaffing wine that married up perfectly with the Mexican food. Their flagship in the world of white wines is Santorini ($23), an incredible bargain that is complex and probably should cost $50. Chalk the bargain up to the fact that the Boutari’s are trying to build a market in the U.S., so they are keeping their prices relatively low.”
