Wine & Spirits magazine, among the leading wine publications of the world, is published in New York. It has 23.000 subscribers and a readership of over 200.000 per issue.
Each year in April, Wine & Spirits publishes its Annual Restaurant Poll, where a large number of restaurant wine specialists, from sommeliers to wine buyers evaluate wines with the best performance per label, variety and country of origin. The 2012 poll includes two Alpha Estate labels (from a total of eight Greek wines). Wine & Spirits tasting is a two step blind tasting process, with just a 20%-30% passing from the first to the second stage of tasting.
This important honor, preceded by particularly flattering references and reviews on Alpha Estate wines, from leading international wine authorities, Robert Parker (Mark Squires), Jancis Robinson MW OBE (Julia Harding MW), Jeannie Cho Lee MW, Steven Spurrier, James Halliday, Tara Q. Thomas and others, reinforces our creative passion and it gives us courage and strength to support even further our quality efforts in promoting Greek wine at international level.
