Greek Salad contains feta, olives, onions, tomatoes, and vinegar, and it should be paired with a wine of a similar sharpness.
We suggest Assyrtiko because it is Greek, and because has a crisp acitity.
Try also a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. The herbal side complements the olives, oregano, and garlic, while the zesty citrus embraces the tomatoes.
Pairing wine with salads can be a challenge.
Salad dressings are mostly vinegar-based with high acidity.
Always remember to pair Acidity with Acidity.
Low acidity wines will drown in the salad. Avoid them.
Tannic reds will taste sour next to anything bright and acidic. Avoid them.
Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
