Join us in Vancouver on a lovely summer evening to explore the diversity that Greek gastronomy has to offer from its wondrous land, sea, & soil.
Learn from wine professor Dr. John Volpe, and Chef Petro Dimopoulous from Vancouver’s Nammos Estiatorio about the savory delight of Greek wine and food. Petro has carefully paired eight exquisite courses alongside eight wines by Kir Yianni of Northwestern Greece.
Kir Yianni prides itself on producing wines that appeal to the taste of the modern consumer reflecting the potential of the Greek vineyard and of its indigenous varieties, such as the noble red Xinomavro.
Dr. John Volpe will share his deep understanding of these wines, as an ecologist with a special interest in the linkages between ecology, sustainability, quality, and the importance of place.
The event will focus on grapes and wines where history, environment, soil, and climate are important determinants of the final product.

I and my students use quantitative analyses of food and wine production systems to reveal linkages between ecological and social sustainability, “quality”, and the primacy of place … “Ecogastronomy”
