The winery is situated in the Northern Peloponnese, 5 km from the Gulf of Corinth on the road to the ski resort of Kalavryta. The vineyards are all north facing and are at an altitude of 750 – 1005 metres. This leads to slow maturation of the grapes, so the wine has better aromas and more structure. Also, the intense summer heat is tempered by the cooling winds that blow from the Gulf of Corinth.
Traditional Greek Retsina, certified Organic and made from Roditis grapes organically grown. The resin is collected from pine trees adjacent to the vineyards by the winemaker. The wine is fermented with the resin without sulphur in traditional ceramic Pythoi (17 ceramic urns in total). The winemaker then adds 1 kilo of resin to 1000 litres of wine. Minimal sulphur is added just before bottling. Gold yellow colour with flavours of lemon blossoms, white peach and elegant hints of pine. Crispy acidity and long after-taste. This wine was described by Mark de Vere M.W. President of USA Masters of Wine as “ Beautiful”. Good as an aperitif with nuts and olives. The resin character make this a good match for light curry dishes. Of course goes with all things Greek!!
