Winemaker notes

An excellent aged wine from the red grape varieties Xinomavro and Moschomavro coming from our vineyards located on the slopes of mountain in PGI Siatista zone by using organic cultivation.

Produced with the traditional method of red vinification, matured for 10 months in oak barrels and aged 10 years in the bottle.

Xinomavro is an indigenous grape variety that grows in Northern Greece. Xinomavro is difficult to grow.  It’s sensitive to a number of diseases and susceptible to vintage variation. Not too many winemakers are able to craft stunningly rich and concentrated wines that are truly world-class, able to develop and mature over many decades. These wines gain a lot of elegance over time, losing all their roughness.

Moschomavro  is a red grape variety cultivated mainly in the region of Kozani , Grevena and sporadically in Thessalia . It is a lively, robust, fertile and productive variety with a good durability in drought. The growth starts approximately within the first 15 days of April and ripens after mid-September. Moschomavro gives high graded wines with good acidity, slightly aromatic with medium color.
