Wines of Crete Documentary

Born and raised on the island, I always had a passion for culture, history, and the traditions of Crete. But what’s a passion if it’s not shared? I wanted to share a piece of Crete with you, that is why I embarked on this journey of documentary film making.

I went to Crete this summer, under very difficult travel conditions and interviewed 11 winemakers, discovered fascinating grape varieties, tasted mouthwatering wines and now creating a documentary for the wine lovers in the U.S and Australia. I have already invested $13,700 and now I am looking for help raising funds for the post production editing and film festivals submission fees.

Greece Earthquake Relief Fund

This disaster relief fund will support people in Greece impacted by the 7.0M earthquake in the form of emergency aid like food, water, medicine, and shelter. The fund will remain open to provide long-term assistance as needed. All donations to this fund will exclusively support communities and first responders impacted by this disaster.

Our Challenge
On Oct 30, 2020, a 7.0M earthquake in the Aegean Sea caused widespread damage along the coasts of both Turkey and Greece. At least 14 people were killed and more than 600 were injured from collapsed buildings and flooding according to local officials. This fund was created to provide immediate relief to survivors in the form of food, shelter, water, and medicine. After immediate needs are met, additional funds will support long-term assistance to help residents recover and rebuild.

Solution
All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for this earthquake. Initially, funds will help first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will later transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in the communities affected in Greece.

Long-Term Impact
We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.

Support Margo Wine Routes

Ourania “Margo” Margomenou had an epiphany: her life’s path should be devoted in bringing together the wine adventurists, the travelers with a knack for authentic experiences, closer to the people who cultivate and “vini cultivate” the Greek earth.

In order to create a bottle of good wine, one must start with good soil – same ingredient for ‘planting’ the idea to create the wine routes: Her extensive journey in the wine world (rich bedding) along with the urge to explore, discover and analyze the beginnings of things (roots). Add the need to communicate and interact with like-minded people and share the love of quality wine and food, (blossoming branches): Margo wine routes travel agency was created.

The name “wine routes” has a double meaning: the word “routes” has the same pronunciation with the word “roots”. A journey to our roots, how wine routes brings us closer to our roots (through history). Finding the way to combine these two was essentially the beginning of Margo wine routes.

Support Greek Wine Club & Receive Greek Wine

Greek wine and wine making is as ancient as the columns that line the Parthenon. Archaeologists have uncovered wine making artifacts from Greece that date as far back as 1600 BC, as the area played an enormous role in wine trade. We can even credit the Greeks with establishing an appellation system to ensure quality and place of origin.

Today’s Greek winemakers, with a nod to antiquity, are working to bring Greek wine back into vogue. Updated wine making technology blended with the nation’s 300 indigenous grape varieties (some of them ancient) has done much to elevate the modern-day perception of Greek viticulture. The Greek climate is also a winning combination: ample sun, minimal rainfall and abundant poor soil set the stage for some serious grape growing.

Greek wine appears to have it all – history, climate and uniqueness. And now it has one more thing: delivery to your door! Browse the collection >
