Dionysia 2007 wine-tasting festival

The Dionysia 2007 wine-tasting event opened at Zappeion Hall in central Athens yesterday, and will last through Sunday. Wine enthusiasts have the opportunity to sample from more than 1,000 Greek and foreign brands. Entrance is 15 euros and includes a Riedel wine glass. In the past two decades, a new generation of Greek wine producers has transformed the previously lackluster image of the industry.
