CURIOSITY

RETSINA IS THE CATCH-ALL TERM FOR RESINATED WINES. THE TRADITION ORIGINATES IN THE ATTICA WINE REGION, WHERE THE FRESH PINE RESIN OF THE NATIVE OLD PINE TREES IN ATTICA (PINUS HALAPENSIS) IS INTRODUCED INTO THE MUST OF THE WHITE SAVATIANO BEFORE FERMENTATION. RETSINA AND NON RESINATED SAVATIANO DRY WINES HAD A STRONG CENTURY LONG HISTORY, BEING THE KEY PLAYER IN THE LOCAL WHITE WINES OF ATHENS BETWEEN 1850-1980.
