The idea of a holiday on a Greek island conjours up images of relaxing on the beach, or watching the sun go down with a glass of Retsina in your hand, but you may not think of it as a destination for trying some quality wines. On the Greek island of Zakynthos (also known as Zante), I met up with a couple of wine-makers, Timothy and Christina Maria, who are trying to change this image by starting a boutique winery on Timothy’s family property at Oenolpi Winery.

Christina talked me through a tasting of their wines and Timothy showed me around. As we walked through the vineyard and olive groves, with the pretty little blue chapel, I thought what a beautiful island Zakynthos is and how the inland area away from the crowded beaches has so much to offer.
