Wojciech Bońkowski, one of the most influential voices for wine in Poland and a 50 GGW judge, comments: “50 GGW is a competition unique on a world scale, in which the samples are not purchased from winemakers, all wines are bought in a store. And money does not simply grant medals. Greek wine has developed dynamically, presenting jewels among the countless Greek islands, islets, peninsulas, mountains and lakes, from which they all boast with their rare strains and historical traditions. The results from the second edition of the 50 GGW was reported in Ferment No15, which took place back in May. This brought completely new, surprising results, with Santorini staying tight, but not dominating the game like two years ago. There were a lot of new unique wines from Crete, Dodecanese, but also Central Greece, unknown winemakers, debuting for the first time.”
