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.

Walls: Brézème and Seyssuel – sleeping beauties of the Northern Rhône
By 1965, the vineyards of Condrieu had largely been abandoned – phylloxera and two world wars had decimated the place and its people. There were just 8ha of vines remaining on these granite slopes. If it weren’t for the hard work of a few steadfast vignerons, the appellation might have disappeared entirely, reclaimed by the forest. Thankfully, Condrieu survived and has since flourished – but great appellations have been lost before. We know this because some have recently been rediscovered. In f ...
The word of the wine: Malolactic fermentation
Called second fermentation or malo for short. It is the degradation (under the effect of bacteria) of the malic acid naturally present in the wine into milder, less aggressive lactic acid. Some producers or wineries refuse this operation by "blocking the malo" (by cold and adding SO2) to keep a maximum of acidity which carries the aromas and accentuates the sensation of freshness.
