Greek varieties on the rise: Masterclass with José Vouillamoz on the present and future of Greek varieties
22 June 2016
On July 14, Dr. José Vouillamoz, (co- author with Jancis Robinson and Julia Harding MW, of the “wine bible” Wine Grapes) is coming to Greece for a single masterclass on Greek autochthonous varieties.
For the last two months we are secretly been planning together with José the masterclass “Greek varieties on the rise” where José will highlight ways of preserving and promoting indigenous Greek varieties, the research needed and the future of these varieties. We have also, chosen together nine wines from obscure varieties. Jose is very enthusiastic about presenting the most recent data available. The varieties represented are: Robola, Vidiano, Aidani, Mavroudi, Kydonitsa, Negoska, Mavrotragano, Mouchtaro and Chidiriotiko.
Moreover viticultural consultant Dr. Haroula Spinthiropoulou, Dr. Yiannis Voyiatzis (president of Wines of Greece) and Dr. George Kotseridis from Agricultural University will compose a panel moderating and answering questions.
Where: Greek Yacht Club (NOE) Mikrolimano, Piraeus
When: Thursday, July 14, starting at strictly 19:30. At the end of the masterclass a cocktail reception will follow.
