Even with this controversial image, (until recently), Retsina is still undoubtedly a part of the cultural heritage of Greece. Coming to Greece and Attiki and not tasting a sample of PGI Retsina of Attiki (ΠΓΕ Ρετσίνα Αττικής) is the wine equivalent of landing in the city of Athens and not making the climb up to the Parthenon.
If there is one thing we all look for when travelling, it’s the chance to experience first-hand how the local people really live and and sample an authentic taste of their heritage. There is no better way to understand Greeks and how they perceive life than tasting a glass of PGI Retsina of Attiki (ΠΓΕ Ρετσίνα Αττικής).
Fortunately, in recent years, the quality revival of Retsina has been impressive. All it took, was for its best practitioners to believe that Retsina could be more than the inferior wine it was considered to be, and more importantly, for the world to change its perception of this unique style of wine.
