History The Greek is an ancient white berry whose introduction to the south and center of Italy should be traced back to the Greek colonization of the VIII century BC. When the agricultural crisis pushed many Hellenists to find new lands on our peninsula, creating what would then be called Magna Grecia. It seems that the first introduction of this vine has occurred in Calabria, with the landing of seeds, many of which will be the basis of Italian vines. The Romans were able to exploit and spread the greek Italians now Italianized throughout the Mediterranean and throughout Europe and then in the Middle Ages the Serenissima Republic of Venice continued the work. They also spread Greek in all the ports under their control. Many vineyards started slow climate adaptation, changing features as well, so that some vines such as Garganega, the main varietal of Soave, and Grechetto, are directly derived from the Greek.
