The financial crisis in Greece continues taking its toll. I interviewed George Skouras from the Domaine Skouras over a couple of days to get an insiders view on how this affects the Greek wine industry. Domaine Skouras is very well known outside of Greece, and was voted as one of the 100 top wineries of the year by the Wine & Spirits Magazine in 2009.
In order to reach a broader readership, I chose to submit the article to Palate Press, an online magazine that features wine writers from across the globe. Launched in summer last year, Palate Press has quickly grown into one of the most read wine blogs in the world. They are unique in their approach, as they assign a professional editor to every single story they receive. Editing is of course a time consuming process, and I can only imagine that a backlog of stories can built up quickly.
The interview was conducted on April 30th and May 3rd and my write up submitted to Palate Press on the following evening. This morning, the article is already featured online. Kudos to the whole team at Palate Press for working so professional and efficient, I am stunned by just how quickly they published the content. I also wish to thank George Skouras for taking the time to answer all my questions in such a detailed manner. He certainly is a busy man, and I really appreciate his effort.
The article can be found here, and I believe it offers a unique insight into how Greek wineries fare in the times of crisis. After all, it comes straight from the source.
