Greek names are tricky so if you need some help, download the transcript HERE

This episode I am joined by a top Greek Sommelier who is working in London. He decided to stay anonymous as he is launching his own projects and wants to keep them all about the wine, and not who he is. You can check them out https://thevinonaut.com/ and on You Tube: VinoRepublic

We are of course, talking all things Greece wine.

(I apologize for the bad audio during our conversation: Sadly the microphone had a mid-life crisis, and left us with some pretty dodgy sound - but I promise: you'll forget about it within a few minutes!!!)
