10 Greek Whites for Winter

Greek White Wines

Winter’s icy grip is a reality, but imagine more balmy climes (and drink-related wines) for an easy escape from seasonal woe. Deep blue Aegean seas, sun-drenched vineyards, a vinous repast overlooking the caldera of Santorini got your attention? Enjoy these delicious, affordable white Greek pours for a taste of a kinder season, and pair them with virtually anything on your table. Their versatility is part of what makes them sommeliers’ darlings.
