Achaia and Ilia in Western Greece are two top wine regions that most of you have never heard of. There are a number of reasons that both are currently not well known. However, there are far more reasons for Achaia andIlia to emerge as leading producing wine areas in the next few years. Their history can be matched by very few places around the world – and this is not only related to wine history, but to “plain” history as well.
For centuries, they have been the canvas where local producers crafted some most individual as well as outstanding wine styles. For millennia, they have been the motherland for numerous, rare grape varieties capable of astonishing quality potential. Over millions of years, they gave birth to a myriad of different terroirs, creating a complex yet demanding and even extreme landscape, waiting to be translated, over the course of all these years, by the grape varieties, from the producers, into sublime wines.
Achaia and Ilia do not have to struggle to develop, or design, a personality for the wines they are producing. All that needs to be done is just let this personality flow across the globe.
And this is an extraordinary advantage in today’s wine world!
