Discovering the wine region of Aegean Sea

The Turkey/tr-aegean">Aegean Islands – the most famous of which are Greece/crete">Crete, Dodecanese/rhodes">Rhodes, Samos and Cyclades/santorini">Santorini – lie in the Aegean Sea between Greece and Turkey. The islands have a Long and influential winemaking history spanning thousands of years, but in the modern day are most famous for Santorini's Dry, minerally, white wines made from Assyrtico-based white wines made from Assyrtico. The Aegean Sea covers roughly 83,000 square miles (215,000 sq km) between the Southern coast of Greek Macedonia and Crete in the south. Several groups of islands make up the Aegean archipelago, including the Sporades in the North, the Dodecanese just off the coast of Turkey and the Cyclades near the Attica coast.

Vines are grown on nearly every inhabited island in the Aegean Sea. The Minoan civilization on Crete is thought to have been the first in Europe, and wine production dates back to at least 5000B. C. , as evidenced by ancient wine Presses that have been discovered across the island.

The 5th Century BC poet Homer described the thriving wine trade in the Aegean in both the Iliad and the Odyssey, and discoveries across the Mediterranean basin of ancient amphorae bearing Aegean insignia suggest that wine was one of the chief economies here in classical Greece. The famed Malvasia-based Sweet wines were produced on many of the Aegean Islands during the period of Venetian rule in the Middle Ages, particularly on Crete, Rhodes and Paros. These wines were exported across Europe between the 14th and 17th Centuries, slating the thirst of well-to-do Parisians, Londoners and Fiorentini. Unfortunately, the period of Ottoman rule that followed saw a major decline in this trade, as well as in wine production across the Aegean Islands.

Discover the grape variety: Aubin

Aubin is a grape variety commonly found in the vineyards of Lorraine. Rozérieulles, Bruley or Buligny have a few plantations of it. The green variety of this grape variety is one of the 16 grape varieties resulting from a cross between pinot noir and gouais blanc. Aubin, a white grape variety, is not to be confused with another black grape plant, aubun. The green white or white Euvezin, as it is still called, is of satisfactory vigour but its productivity is widely variable. The plant can be recognized by its small bunches. Sometimes winged, they are rather loose and cylindrical in shape, and contain small berries that promise medium-quality vinification. The juice is often associated with other grape varieties. Partial abortion of the berries is common with Aubin. It is also necessary to do what is necessary to preserve this endangered grape variety from oidosis.
