Greek Red Wine Wins Critics Award in NY

November 9, 2016

The Greek wine “Grand Reserve Naoussa Boutari 2008” won the Wine Spectators Critics Award in the Grand Tasting of New York Wine Experience.

The New York Wine Experience is organised every year by the popular wine magazine Wine Spectator. The distinction for Grand Reserve Naoussa Boutari, which was the only Greek wine among 250 wines from 15 countries, is extremely important since it won over iconic wines such as the Chateau D’Yquem, Penfolds, Opus One, Chateau Lafite Rothschild, and Vega Sicilia.
“We are very proud that our wine stood high among the “Major Wines” of the international vineyards and excels for its character and is internationally praised something that is indicative of our consistent focus on quality,” Boutari wineries general director Ioannis Voyatzis stated to Athens Macedonian News Agency.

The red wine Grand Reserve Naoussa Boutari comes from the Greek wine variety Xinomavro which originates from the uplands of Naoussa and is mostly cultivated in Goumenissa, Amyntaio, and in other parts of Macedonia.


They were shunted aside for more fashionable French varieties that took their place for years but old Greek grape varieties proved you couldn't keep them down and are coming back again.
