In order to ensure that only the very best fruit reaches the winery we have recently contracted to manage 5 hectares of Robola in a premium location within the zone. This allows us full control from pruning to harvest with the support of our professional viticulturist consultant.
Over the past few years we have seen that the future of Greek wines lies in the amazing array of indigenous varieties and the unique wines that they can produce, either on their own or in a blend. We therefore took the financially difficult decision to uproot all our vineyards that had Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc and plant the local red variety Mavrodaphne instead.
Mavrodaphne of Kefalonia is a rare cousin of the better known Mavrodaphne of Patras which is made into a sweet wine. On Kefalonia, however, this grape is mainly fermented into a powerful, dry wine with characteristic aromas of sour cherry and wild mint.
