I am leaving today on a press trip to visit Santorini with Wines from Santorini. If you haven’t seen how the vines are trained there, it’s pretty remarkable. They are woven into these baskets or nests to protect the grapes from the fierce wines.
I look forward to sharing stories and images from this trip as well as answering any questions you may have. You can read my interview with Yiannis Paraskevopoulos of Gaia Wines about Greek wines in general on the Foodista blog.
