I havn't been there for a few years, and heard they closed down.

Either way, they didn't have Retsina at that time, maybe I should check with them again.

Thanks for the reminder!

Now this buffle's me, never knew this was actually drunk and called "wine", always thought Retsina is greek type turpentine.

OK, I know, It's an acquired taste.

In Greece we were told "Seven times Retsina, always Retsina!" and apparently it worked on me.

If you dont like it, send the Greeks an email about it or something, If you know where to find some in Bangkok, let me know. :o

Cheers,

Is it better or worse than Zivarnia?

Thought this was a mosquito repellent! :o

Well, I get your point, my point even it was a bit around the "corner" was to be honest: why bother?

I know it's up 2 u... and it certainly is...

One can find all sorts of wines, beers and spirits in the big mango but it has to be retsina - well.... I suggest the Greek Chamber of Commerce or the Embassy...

But I understand it's about if there is Ricard, people want Pernod, if there is Ouzo, people want Raki...

If you find it let me know if they sell Mavrodaphne too

My Dad gave me a bottle of Retsina once.  I liked it.  But I do like the smell of turpentine (Pine) and Juniper.
