WINE

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE - ANDY CRONSHAW

I’VE just re­turned from a fam­ily hol­i­day spent in a quiet re­sort on the beau­ti­ful Greek is­land of Zakyn­thos.

It’s the fur­thest south of the Io­nian is­lands which stay rel­a­tively green thanks to rain showers in the win­ter and thun­der storms dur­ing the sum­mer.

Ev­ery fam­ily’s plot of land seems to in­clude a vine­yard, how­ever small, along with the ubiq­ui­tous olive groves.

And the is­land is also home to some very drink­able and in­di­vid­ual wines which can rarely be found else­where.

If you’ve been on your hol­i­days there you may have drunk them in the many tav­er­nas spe­cial­is­ing in Greek dishes such as grilled sea bream and bar­be­cued meats.
