The Wines We Love at Easter

We Greeks take our Easter very seriously, after all it is our biggest Holiday!  After 40 days of prayer and fasting, we honor Christ's Resurrection with a myriad of traditions, tables covered in food and of course, wine. Moms, Aunts and YiaYias spend days baking and prepping from the big feast on Saturday night and all day Sunday.  Dads, Uncles and Papous gather around the fire pit keeping their eyes glued to the slow roasting lamb. From sweet desserts, bread and cookies to sizzling lamb on the spit, from daybreak to the food coma hits us in the late afternoon on Sunday.

Here is a great video by Rick Steve's that shares the importance of Easter to the Greek Orthodox faithful.
