Demetri Walters MW and Dr. José Vouillamoz foreword this edition. Walters comments that ''set in the context of this renaissance, Yiannis Karakasis MW has created an easy-to-read, comprehensive and timely issue that outlines the state of wine production in Greece today, launching a number of enquiries into the current state of Greece's regional styles, specifically the rise of island wines, including the brand dominance of Santorini Assyrtiko. He furthermore assesses the quality developments being achieved in Greece's most famous red wine-growing regions, notably the possibility that Xinomavro of Naoussa might well become the next cause for celebration. Moving on, he evaluates the resurgence of traditional, often obscure, grape varieties and styles, including the rebirth of time-honoured wines such as Retsina as well as the celebrated sweet wine styles. This consideration continues as Karakasis tables his own classification of wine quality based on extensive travels and tasting''.
