about orpheus wine sourcing

For many years Greece’s reputation for winemaking has been widely misunderstood, sometimes maligned, and to some extent relatively undiscovered. With 27 recognised regions across her islands, mainland and peninsulas, the country is home to more than 300 indigenous grape varieties.

Greek wine has rarely seen so much focus in the UK market, and whilst sales of Greek wines in the UK make up a small fraction of total volume, the growth over the last few years has been unprecedented, and the quality and interest of the winemaking is at an all-time high.

The Greek wine market is challenging to navigate for the UK wine trade. The sheer number of indigenous varieties, a unique language and alphabet, along with distinct cultures and ways of working, and a complex geography can make this wonderful wine making country unapproachable for many wine suppliers.

The team at Orpheus are here to support you at every step of the journey in helping you to offer your customers the very best of Greece’s winemaking.
