Help with Greek wines....

perk | Sep 1, 201109:33 PM

A friend of mine is planning a private boat tour of the Greek Islands. Although I'm terribly jealous, I said I'd weigh in (hopefully with your help) on wines.
They gave him a list of choices for stocking the boat.
He's a real foodie...and appreciates good wine.
He'll be having dinner at various I guess this is for lunch and sipping.
Here's the list they gave him:
Whites--Kritikos Kourtakis, Rives, Domestica, Retsina, Tsantalia
Reds--Castel Danielle, Petit Chateau, Demistica, Boutari, Chevalier des Rhodes, Samos,
Retsina Kourtakis, Madodafni

I know that Greek wines have greatly improved since the last time I was there. And I've had some very nice dry wines from there, but don't recall much about them.
I believe that retsina is an acquired taste....and one that I don't want to acquire.
But other than a slight familiarity with a couple of the whites, I'm at a loss.
Suggestions please?
And thanks in advance.
