Quick, the Greeks are coming

Quick, the Greeks are coming

Trade body New Wines of Greece has opened its North American division.

The organisation said earlier this week that it has set up offices in New York, Montreal and Toronto, which will run a three-year campaign designed to increase awareness of Greek wines with consumers, members of the trade and media in the continent.

The initiative is sponsored by the Greek National Inter-Professional Organization of Vine and Wine (EDOAO) and is financed by the EU and Greece.

New Wines of Greece held its first events last week in Toronto and Montreal as part of a 2010 North American Roadshow, a series of tastings and seminars sponsored by the Hellenic Foreign Trade Board - HEPO - and financed by the EU and Greece.

This week, the roadshow visits Chicago and New York, with 50 wineries in attendance, representing all of the major wine producing regions of Greece.
