Just about every shop and supermarket will have a wide range of wines and do try the Greek wines even though you may not recognise the grape varieties. After all, they have been making the stuff for thousands of years. Bottled water is available everywhere.

Please could you recommend some good Greek wines? I'm afraid, I know nothing about Greek wine, but I'd love to find out. I like dry white - sauvignon blanc types.

Many thanks

My favourite in this category is 'Kakotrigis', although there are many more to try before you find the one suited to your taste. Kakotrigis is very much a Corfiot wine although it is grown on the mainland too. See:

www.greekwine.gr/frames/variety/index.html

Easily found are assyrtiko, moschofilero and of course savatiano - the grape from which our famous retsina is made. For a good overview, see:

The rose that we like is Xoriatiko (Χωριάτικο) and it comes in 1.5 l plastic bottles costing €2.60. We buy it in the Acharavi supermarkets, but I guess it's all over the island. There are also whites, reds and retsina - in Diellas, they cost under €2.
