Hudson Valley Greek Wine Tasting


This Sunday I am pouring once again at the Ladies of Philoptohos Greek Wine and Food Tasting.  The event is being held at the Poughkeepsie Kimisis Greek Orthodox Church Hellenic Center in Poughkeepsie.  This is a great event to taste wines from Greece and to enjoy some fabulous Greek food!


I don't know what the selections are this year, but you may be in for a taste of Assyrtiko - a high acid white originally grown in Santorini, or Xynomavro, a red grown in Macedonia that is often compared to a Pinot Noir.   Last year there was a wine produced from Roditis, which is a pink skinned grape grown in the Peloponnese region that can be made into a white or rose wine.   I am sure there will be a bottle of Retsina floating around, wine infused with pine resin.  (I am not a fan of it, but it is something you have to try once)   You can read about the tasting last year by clicking here

There is still time to purchase your tickets.  Come taste some Greek wine with me.  Actually I'll be pouring it for you.  Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.
