Aegean Islands – An important historical wine making area. Their strong shipping network helped get their wines over the world. PDOs include Santorini, Rodos, Samos, Limnos and Paros. Of these Santorini is the most famous and important. A volcano where the vines grow in low basket shaped crowns to protect the grapes from strong winds, fog and hot sunshine.
Muscat Of Alexandra/Moscatel – The same variety that makes Moscato d’Asti, Muscat Beaumes de Venice and Australian Muscat. The naturally high sugar and acid in the grape made it a robust and therefore popular wine before sanitation was properly understood. The balance and highly aromatic nature of the grape makes it a beautiful variety for sweeter wines.
