Greece is a modern, tradition-conscious, many-sided wine country
Greece is a modern and at the same time very traditional country of wine with reputation to be the cradle of European viticulture. Due to the ten wine-growing areas spread over different geographical and climatic locations the versatility of styles and types of grapes is excellent. Some of the products are very modern and internationally oriented, however many of them are cultivated intentionally in a traditional way.
Thanks to huge number of dedicated and outstanding oenolgists and culturally-rooted science of wine growing Greece, hardly ever achieved by anybody else, managed to create a successful blend of tradition and modernity as well as autochthonous and international grape varieties.
The excellent quality of Greek wine is not much known in the German speaking countries except for few famous names. WINE System AG arranged the PAR Greek Wine Award 2017 in order to support wine growers and the promotion of their products and to offer an orientation guide for Greek wines to retailers and wine enthusiasts. This event took place for the sixth time.
The tasting was proceeded according to the internationally accepted PAR-method. This system ensures independent assessment. The results are transparently and comprehensibly documentable. This system demonstrates easily understood the final result as a composition of individual criteria. The tasting pays special attention to the autochthonous grape varieties from Greece.
