(or Meze) This is the chance for dry Greek whites to shine, and there are enough out there of sufficiently high quality really to hit the mark. If you are unable to track them down, then try dry Muscat, Pinot Blanc or Sylvaner from Alsace, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc or Argentinean Torrontés. You could always try to find dry Muscat from Spain or Portugal, too. Albariño from north-western Spain and good old Vinho Verde from Portugal also work well. Aussie dry Riesling always comes up trumps and rarely costs a bomb. Greek reds still lag behind the whites in terms of overall quality – some cheapies are fine, if a little coarse, but I would avoid spending more than a fifteen pounds.
