OINOFILIA RETURNS for 2018

OINOFILIA

A celebration of the food and New Wines of Greece

The Greeks might not have invented wine, but they’ve been making it, pretty damn well we might add, for a helluva long time. The Greek word for wine, oinos, forms part of the term oinofilia which actually means “a love of wine”. If you’re an oenophile, you’re someone who loves wine.

We have the largest Greek population in Melbourne outside of Greece itself, and they’ve brought us gyros and souvlaki, dolmades, saganaki, fetta and haloumi, and more.

They’ve also brought us Assyrtiko, Moschofilero and Xinomavro, and Vidiano, Savatiano and Kotsifali. We bet you’re not as familiar with this lot as you are with the former. But that’s where we come in.

OINOFILIA is a one-day festival celebrating the wines and food of Greece. We have 19 producers from Greece showing off over 80 different Greek wines, giving you a chance to taste and learn and discover what this wonderful country has to offer.

Proudly presented by REVEL
