Pinot Noir has been described as the “Heartbreak Grape” with good reason. Originating from the Burgundy region of France, this fragile grape has proved to be one of the most difficult grape varietals to make wine from. It is fragile, temperamental, and tests the skill of the winemaker to the limit. The winemaker will often fail to produce a good wine from Pinot Noir, hence leading to much “heartbreak”.
Visiting Greece also implies visiting one or more of the fabulous islands. The biggest problem is deciding which to visit. Since we went there out of tourist season, and barely having enough time for just one island, our choice went to Santorini. This turned out to be a great decision and we were not disappointed.
