Greek wines -- looking for a specific one, yes, but more importantly who sells them?

Peaches to Poutine | Feb 2, 2011 04:22 AM

Former Atlantan, now Montrealer, coming back to visit friends and family in about month. I dined at a much lauded restaurant here in Montreal and during the course of my meal, I had possibly the best glass of white I've ever had. Sadly, the SAQ (Selection d'Alcool Quebec; i.e., our liquor stores/control board) doesn't carry it because the owner of the restaurant gets it from private import. Research has determined the following factors:

a) the Ontario liquor control board doesn't carry it, so no 7 hour drive over to that border.

b) the nearest Vermont liquor/wine seller doesn't either.

c) I can order a case (!!!) directly through the restaurant, but that's more money than I want to spend.

I am going to give it a shot and look for it while I'm back home for a week, but I need to know, where in Atlanta could I possibly find it? Star Provisions, perhaps? Green's (which maddeningly doesn't have a search function)?

Any help would be seriously appreciated!

Oh, before I forget, the wine is a 2009 Biblia Chora Areti blanc.
