One of the most interesting things about the 2010-2011 Boutari Social Media Project has been the wide range of fascinating people we’ve met (virtually) along the way. Many of them have been Greek or Greek nationals living in the U.S. But the broad appeal of Greek cuisine and Greek wine also attracts wine lovers and restaurateurs from across the globe.
No lover of Greek wine and fan of Boutari has fascinated us more than Roozbeh Farahanipour (right), an Iranian nationalist, freedom fighter, internationally acclaimed author and activist, and owner of a wonderful neighborhood-oriented and family-friendly Greek restaurant in the Westwood-UCLA district of Los Angeles, Delphi Restaurant.
“I’m fan of Boutari, specifically the Naoussa Grande Reserve,” writes Roozbeh, “but the most popular wines at Delphi are the Kretikos red and white. Santorini also has fans, too. And we regularly serve the Naoussa, Nemea, and Moschofilero.”
