On the 7th March I visited the Oenos exhibition, part of the Detrop 2009 in Thessaloniki. About 20 wineries showed their wines to the public. The event was very well organised, and the hall was very spacious. Every winery had large stands, and there were also a number of wine book and wine magazine publishers. The event was special, as it was not overcrowded and the vintners had actually time to discuss their products. I left Thessaloniki early afternoon and drove back to Athens to arrive early evening. The next morning, I drove to the airport and flew to Germany for a 5 day business trip.
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.
