What is Retsina?

The ancient Greek Retsina is a product resulting from the addition of pine resin in white wine. Clay amphoras were sealed using pine resin in order to create air sealed tight containers. The pine resin would eventually drip down into the wine and this is what originally helped make Greek wine known internationally because of its rather unique character. Retsina now has little relation to its older cousin! The new wave of modern retsina is here and it presents a range of high-quality wines that transcend the specificity of pine resin, creating a valuable and balanced result of award-winning and high-quality wines.
