Rhodes tends to produce large quantities of
good quality table wine, with a dry new world character, mostly due to its
Southern Mediterranean climate. During a recent visit to my favourite supermarket - the Alpha Veropolos or "AB" for short, I noticed this

they can keep up the quality and consistency, then I will be stocking it next
year at the Taverna!
