Somm Kit Page: It’s Greek To Me!

This might be the most exciting Somm Kit we have done all year. As we explain in the video, Greek wine is something that has intimidated us for years. The unpronounceable grapes and regions, the distinctive styles, and the fact that we’ve never been to Greece to experience it with boots on the ground. We aimed to solve that, and we have thanks to this Somm Kit. The wines of Greece are my new jam!

Let’s get to it!
