Wine is on top of the list of Greek people

According to recent researches, Greeks prefer drinking wine.
If you consider the wine production in Greece, it is no surprise that wine comes first in the list of preferences among Greeks, in comparison with all other alcoholic drinks.


Bottled red wine is the most popular choice in Greece, because it is considered more trustworthy, although most Greeks believe that homemade wine is the most pure one.

These are the conclusions of a research on the behavior of the Modern Greek consumers run by the Faculty of Agriculture of the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki.

91% of the people that participated in the research said that they drink wine and 50% of them on a regular basis.

Beer was the second most popular choice (26,8%) then ouzo (24,1%) and whisky (16,5%).

Most people, who responded that they drink wine, tend to drink up to three glasses at a time (84,1%) although most of them stop after the second glass. Just a small percentage (15,9%) drinks more than 4 glasses at a time.

The research took place basically in Thessaloniki; 400 people participated in it, both men and women, of all social classes, educated or not.

The research was run by the Ms student Nikos Sapountzis and the Professor of Agriculture Economy of the Aristotelian University, Eirini Tzimitra Kalogianni.

Greek vs Imported Wines

Most Greeks prefer local Greek wines (64,8%) and just the 0,6% prefers the imported wines, although most of the Greeks have tasted a foreign wine at least once. The ones drinking imported wines usually prefer the ones from Mediterranean countries, such as France.

Red wine is more popular compared to white, and the sparkling wines are last in the list of preferences. A large number of the participants (44,55%) responded that they have never tried organic wines made from organic grapes and vineyards.
