I am desperately searching for a Retsina - a Greek wine - to have as a Christmas gift. However, I have not found a single shop anywhere in Auckland that sells it. Can someone help me here?

BelMondo stock it []

They are in Tauranga however, so not sure if they can get it to you in time. Or ring them and they may know of an Auckland outlet?

Oh went back to my google search and found this Auckland outlet []

Hi there,

Yes retsina is a wonderful wine but i like it from the cold barrels they have in some taverner's where its served ice cold, it gos with fish and souvlas(kebabs).

Only thing is once you start knocking it back you start going on a bad trip and in the morning one real bad nut ache.
I use to love the stuff when we went on holiday to see family (Iam a bubble by the way) especially when there's a wedding coming up retsina would be served but ice cold and from the barrels not bottle retsina, they give you a jug of the stuff straight from the barrel now thats a very nice retsina.
