Greek Wine Spotlight: Retsina

This famous Greek wine has a uniquely different flavor that many describe as something "to be acquired".

This refreshing wine has been around since ancient times (almost 3000 years now) and possesses various degrees of a distinct flavor of pine (depending on the brand you are consuming). The pine flavor comes from the old practice of sealing the wine vessels with pine resin, in order to keep the wine from spoiling. The pine resin kept the air out while at the same time infusing the wine with its distinct pine aroma.
Retsinas are either white or rose and are best served chilled. It is a great accompaniment to Greek food, especially the mezedes - little Greek appetizers.
