A New Wine Map of Greece

We're very happy to have finally released our Wine Map of Greece. Actually, it was a bit of a relief. As much as I love Greek wines, the challenges this map presented was driving me insane: there weren't any up to date or accurate maps to start from, the geographical divisions of Greece have changed twice since the first Greek wine regions were defined and the language is very difficult to translate into English.

Luckily we had a very good translator. The island of Κεφαλονιά translates to both Kefalonia and Cephlonia and if you fly into the airport there, you'll be greeted with a sign that says Welcome to Kefallinia, which is what the island was formerly known as in English. What to do? In general, we chose translations that most often end up on a wine label. In this case it was easy, since all wine makers there use Cephlonia.
