Whether you know it or not, Greece is one of the oldest wine producing regions in the world! Evidence of wine production dates back more than 6,500 years! Since that time, wines have been shared and enjoyed not only in households, but in communal celebrations like ours. And what cultural celebration would be complete without exposure to the local libations? As part of our commitment to our heritage and our local community, you will find that we are primarily offering beers and wines that are either from Greece or Michigan. See below to find our beer and wine offerings, not to mention tasting notes on each.
The Frouzo! A frozen libation made infamous in Greek communities around Michigan, right here in Grand Rapids!
Achaia Clauss Demestica Red – The wine is a soft, dry red with berry fruit aromas and lively youth full fruit flavours from the Peleponnese region of Greece.
Kourtaki Mavrodafni - This variety is cultivated in the vineyards on the north-west facing foothills near to the town of Patras in the Peloponnese. When blended with the Korinthiaki grape and aged using the 'solera' system the result is a full-bodied wine brimming over with dried fruit flavors.
