Greek Culture, Civilization, Gastronomy and Wine.
Greek wine, culture and gastronomy have joined hands for centuries with Wine, having been an important part of Greek culture for over 4000 years as it becomes profound from the numerous archaeological discoveries all over Greece.
A major part in the Greek mythology around God Dionysus ,a god devoted to appreciation of the multi-faceted joy of life. Apart from the nutritional value of wine , which the ancient Greeks knew very well, they decided to render it an inseparable part of their daily regimen.They loved to organize intellectual gatherings called “symposia” where they would eat and talk about philosophical subjects while drinking wine.
So Greek wine history is inevitably associated with the culture, the economy, the religion, the social and everyday life, but also the places where viticulture, wine production and wine consumption developed, from prehistoric times until today that we are talking about Greece’s modern wines and their “regeneration”- “revolution”.
Greek wine history is continuing with the best possible and most modern way, on the same lands that have hosted one of the most historic vineyards of the world for thousands of years now.
