This is the third video in my quest to bring 100 different grape varieties from Greece to you.

PetroulianosFact File Petroulianos

Area grown: Lakonia, Peleponnese

History: Petroulianos is one of the real ancient grape varieties of Greece. It is actually quite rare. Today, it is mainly used as a blend, but varietal bottlings are well worth seeking out. It certainly is not mainstream, as even in Greece most people have likely never heard of it.

Grapes: White

Nose/bouquet: Minerals, pebbles, ripe peaches, citrus, seasalt. Full bodied with crisp acidity.

About Markus Stolz

Over the last years, I have come to really appreciate Greek wines. There are many grape varieties that exist only in Greece and I have the good fortune of being able to try them all. I wish to share my enthusiasm with wine lovers around the world, who often limit themselves to maybe four red and four white grape varieties for most of their life.
