Greek wine bar?

Chow Baby Mar 9, 2008 12:03 PM

I'm looking for a wine bar that specializes in Greek wines.

Willing to travel.

Any help?

Thanks.

    Check out Kellari Taverna...the food ain't all that, but they do have a nice selection of Greek wines and an outstanding atmosphere to enjoy them in

      Snack and Snack Taverna have a pretty broad selection of Greek wines (and decent meze).

        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.

          I should mention my intention is to familiarize myself with Greek wines.

          Thanks for the responses so far.

            What about sitting at the bar at Milos? That is where I found my passion for the red Amethystos wine. SO good!!

            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.
