Wines to Enjoy at Your Easter Feast

April 8, 2018

This Easter, add a Greek wine (or two, or three) to your traditional Easter celebrations.

Dougos Winery, located in Itea Larissas, the Tempi Valley, at the foot of Mount Olympus,at an altitude of 450 meters (about 1,476 feet), has an impressive selection of wines to choose from to enhance your dining experience on Easter Sunday. Thanos Dougos, agriculturist and manager of the Dougos Winery, noted that “In 1991, the Dougos family began its journey in the world of Greek wine, setting out to develop the vineyards and produce top quality wines.”

If you are serving foods that feature classic Greek flavors, like octopus marinated in red

wine with onions, bell peppers, capers, lemon, and olive oil, serve it with Dougos

Sauvignon Blanc 2016. It makes a great combination. The wine is aromatic with

balanced acidity and a nice aftertaste, a fine match for some tasty octopus.

The organic wine, Dougos Meth’imon Acacia 2015, is a wonderful blend of Assyrtiko

and Sauvignon Blanc. The organic Dougos Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)

Rapsani 2014, is a blend of 40 percent Xinomavro, 40 percent Krasato, and 20 percent

Stavroto varieties. The intriguing vintage is a great match with the bold flavors of most

Greek feasts.

The organic Dougos PDO Old Vines 2015, a blend of 65 percent Xinomavro, 25 percent

Krasato, and 10 percent Stavroto. The wine has a wonderful versatility which is perfect,

not only with savory, but with sweet foods as well.
