Retsina is the best known traditional Greek wine. Its reputation, not always positive, had long overshadowed that of other distinguished Greek wines and appellations.
According to archaeological finds and countless written accounts regarding its production and consumption, Retsina, or “retinitis oenos” as it was called in antiquity, has been steadily produced for thousands of years. The main reasons for the use of pine resin used in vinification were the following:
Every year the Association of Friends of The American Farm School of Thessaloniki in Athens, they are raising money for a full scholarship of a student.
Their main source is an American bbq that the last two years, due to covid 19, was cancelled.
In this point its our contribution, since Nikitas, Cinque’s Oenologist and Sommelier, has graduated from the AFS. He chose 4 wines, under a special label, and from the sales we will give to the scholarship.
