This is my last part from My Instagram Best Of and if you have not yet checked out the Greek wines you can see them here. Remember, this is the selection of wines that gathered the most likes on my Instagram account and includes wines from my various trips around the world. 

With best wishes for the new year

A tie for a lovely Alvarinho Soalheiro enjoyed at Kantina Qaulity Foods in Cyprus and a perfumed and very elegant Clonakilla O'Riada Shiraz drunk in a tavern in Meteora Central Greece. 

Number 9 

The Maiden is the second label of Harlan. 2008 was absolutely delicious, detailed with an almost satiny texture. A sensual wine.

Another tie with two wines enjoyed over lunch in New York with dear friend Keith Edwards (Masseto and Monfortino) and a gem from Cyprus and Tsiakkas winery. 

Number 6

Reserve de la Comtesse 1995 drunk in the unique setting of Citta dei Nicliani hotel in the Mani.

A lovely drop of Chateau Suduiraut in Oinoscent wine bar. With the help of Lily :). 

Number 3

The Merlot extravaganza in Aleria restaurant featuring Petrus, Masseto, L' Aparrita, Palafreno, Duckhorn and other wonderful expressions of the variety.
