Kontozisis Drop by Drop
A garlic-lover’s friend
A yummy dry white wine from one of the oldest organic producers in Greece. Made from a grape called Roditis, a mainstay of Greek wine culture, this version is clean, citrusy, a bit sharp (in a good way), that rounds out a touch at the end. It’s a bit edgy, they way white cliffs in Greece cut right through the aqua blue ocean. It begs for tangy yogurt sauces and lots of garlic!
Perfect with classic Greek fair: Chicken Souvlaki, minty yogurt sauce, tons of lemon and hordes of garlic. This will stand up to spices like cumin and paprika, as well as brighten up any smoky char-grilled flavors.
