Wines of Greece            Wednesday                   June 4
Greece has the history of being the early cradle of winemaking among the Mediterranean countries.  Harry’s is proud to promote these fine wines, and at this class you can also experience the appreciation and enjoyment of this historical lineage.  The wine makers of Greece are crafting wines from indigenous varieties with a true sense of place in one of the world’s most diverse growing environments.   Greek wines are on many main stream wine lists, and they are a Sommelier’s dream for pairing with a wide range of foods.  Don’t be intimidated by the unfamiliar grape names.  We’ll give you some quick tips on how to remember your favorites, and also a couple of short-hand pronunciations that are as easy to say as “I’ll have a Cab!”  $35 one session   Just keep this one vision in mind . . .  SUMMER IN SANTORINI !
