Greek wine bar?

I'm looking for a wine bar that specializes in Greek wines.
Willing to travel.
Snack and Snack Taverna have a pretty broad selection of Greek wines (and decent meze).
105 Thompson St, New York, NY 10012
63 Bedford St, New York, NY 10014
Not really greek, but check out Kashkaval in Hell's Kitchen. Great wine bar with small plates from the middle east and fondues. Very moderately priced as well.
Not a wine bar recommendation, but a wine recommendation if Greek wines are your goal. Bottlerocket, an excellent wine store on 19th and 5th, carries a gorgeous Greek white varietal, Malagousia. There's only one vineyard producing it right now, the grape nearly went extinct, but had a lucky late revival. I happened to remember this because they've been out for awhile, but just got in the new crop...I haven't tried the latest yet but I've been dying to. It's a lovely lovely white, with a floral nose, beautiful yellow jewel tones, it's delicate with a hint of mineral and fruit, yet still staying pleasantly on the dry side. Very reasonably priced, I think under $25.
