On the 25.02. I gladly welcomed Mr. Dimitris Gouravas at my home. Mr. Gouravas holds a PhD in Oenology from the University of Bordeaux, France, and sits on the panels of judges of various wine competitions all over Europe. He is a flying winemaker and handles various wineries at different times of the harvest. He is the general manager of the Michalakis estate, is in charge of 7 wineries of Boutari, as well as being the Oenologist for Alagiannis, Claudia Papayianni, Sabanis and the Malta based Dacroutos. In the past, he worked at Chateau Climens in Barsac. We discussed the Greek wine market in great detail, and it became clear that we both share the same vision, enthusiasm and love to promote Greek wines abroad. Mr. Gouravas is a very much down to earth person with a deep knowledge of his work, and it was entertaining and enlightening to share our thoughts.
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.
