In discussing her new book, Wine Grapes: A Complete Guide to 1,368 Vine Varieties, Including Their Origins and Flavours (her landmark encyclopedia of grape varieties), Master of Wine and prolific author and editor Jancis Robinson recently told the Daily Meal that Assyrtiko was one of the grapes that stood out in research conducted by her and her team of authors.

It makes a “stunning white wine with very strong personality… I’m sure it’s going to be planted more widely. It should be planted outside its native country.”
