Yannis Voyatzis, the man behind the Greek wine renaissance
Dr. Yannis Voyatzis is the chief enologist at Boutari Wines and the driving force behind the many distinct wines produced at their six wineries.
After finishing his studies at the Enological Institute at Bordeaux, Dr. Voyatzis returned to Greece, where he has spent nearly thirty years working with Boutari.
He is a treasure-trove of information on grape varietals, soil types, and Greek appellations.
And in many ways, he is the architect of the renaissance of Greek wine today.
From his pioneering work with Moschofilero in Mantineia to the his revolutionary approach to Assyrtiko and the wines of Santorini, he has literally reshaped the world’s perceptions of Greek wines.
He’s also one of the nicest and funniest people you’ll ever meet in the wine trade.Boutari
