"Retsina" Drink Tip by gale.blog.pl

Drink, Crete Island: 2 reviews and 5 photos


What to buy: Retsina - a very special kind of wine. You can hate it or you can love it. One thing is for sure - you cannot ignore it :-)

Whatever your experience with retsina is going to be, give it a chance. To me there is no better wine than a good local retsina.

What you see in this pic is a bottle of a simple local retsina from Kissamos, west Crete. There is nothing special in how the bottle looks, there's nothing awkward in the design of the label. But the treasure is locked inside the bottle. This retsina is incredibly smooth and delicate (for a retsina).

Taste as many brands of retsina as you can. Select your favourite brand and producer.

What to pay: Not much indeed. Usually twice as much as mineral water.
