    Strabo still found time to enjoy the wine on Samos – an experience shared almost two thousand years later by Byron. But his observation that the wine from the Ephesus region “has been found to cause headache” seems in some sad way to be true to this day. It is unfathomable that a region that can produce such good olives, figs and dates has still not managed to make wine that matches that on neighbouring Greek islands.
