10 Memorable Wines for Memorial Day

              Gaia on the island of Santorini, Greece had one of the most memorable tasting settings

Wine-Knows has visited more than 25 wine-making countries around the globe.  We've tasted tens of thousands of wines since the first group we took to Europe in 1978.  Selecting a mere ten is a near impossible task, however, we’ve managed to narrow it down.   Nine are wineries; one is an actual wine region.  If you’ve visited any of them with us you’ll understand why they made it on this blog.   (Listed in alpha order by country.)
