Greek myth tells us that Dionysus, son of Zeus, the king of the gods, gave wine to the world.Wine has been made on the Greek island of Lemnos for at least 3,300 years because Homer mentions the quality of the product in his Iliad. Until about a century ago the vineyards of Lemnos were planted mainly with indigenous grapes like limnio, kuntra and fokiana. The wines of Lemnos could best be described as bright and fresh.He sent his daughter and son to wine school in Bordeaux. They make five still wines, two dessert wines from Muscat of Alexandria, and a lovely semisweet sparkling known as Muscat of Lemnos. This is a delightful wine with good acidity and a wonderful texture that would be refreshing on the hottest of days. Lemnos is one of the best places in Greece for sweet wines. Dionysus drank from them with a cup made of sheep's horn decorated with bronze or gold known as a rhyton. We should be grateful to Dionysus for bringing wine to the beautiful island of Lemnos.
