Description

Details

Award-winning authentic Greek drink, Retsina is known as "the Greek wine" to most but this is not at all accurate, as it should be in category that is separate from wines as we know them. Made of two grape varieties, Savatiano and Rhoditis, this specialty drink is enhanced with pine resin during fermentation giving it a drink with character (hence its name). Retsina is exclusively produced in Greece and has a unique taste and identity which should not be compared to white wines. When you order at a Greek tavernas, request it plainly as Retsina. Always serve Retsina chilled especially on a hot summer day. Retsina has been given the traditional appellation of a protected origin by the European Union.
