“ More than eight years on from
the last major tasting of Greek wines in London, we British tasters were offered
a marvellous array of wines... that this tasting took place at all was primarily
to the considerable powers of persuasion of Mary Pateras, indefatigable lover and
promoter of Greek wines, who imports a wide range of these wines into the UK through
her London-based Eclectic Wines...

“ An eclectic small roster of customers,
to whom they give super, super stuff
