“Greek varieties on the rise” talk with Dr. Jose Vouillamoz and Yiannis Karakasis MW

Greek varieties on the rise” was the theme of a most interesting Masterclass held at the Yacht Club in the southern suburbs of Athens a few days ago. The presence of Dr. Jose Vouillamoz, acclaimed grape geneticist and co-author of Wine Grapes, and Yiannis Karakasis MW has certainly been the intriguing factor that made this event stand out. Eight native grapes of Greece have been presented in full detail -among them our Mavroudi of Thrace-, followed by a tasting and an open discussion with a panel of winemakers and enologists including Dr. Yannis Voyatzis, Dr. Haroula Spinthiropoulou and Dr. Yorgos Kotseridis.
