Mary Pateras and her husband Polys have been importing fine Greek wines to the UK since 2002. They are wholesalers but Mary, a true aficionado whose knowledge and passion I have huge respect for, is happy to provide information and advice. They represent (Hatzidakis- Santorini, Thymiopoulos- Naoussa , N.W. Greece, Samos Coop,- The island of Samos, Semeli- Nemea , Skouras- Nemea Tetramythos -North Peloponnese 100% organic, Karavitakis- Crete, Gentilini- Kefalonia, Anatolikos -organic Thrace ). Their wines can be purchased through
- the Wine Society – a one off membership fee of £40 and free UK delivery,
- Theatre of Wine who deliver nationwide free for a minimum order of £90
- Waitrose and M&S
A wine well worth trying right now is Thymiopoulos Jeunes Vignes.
