Amongst The Great
As the quality and variety of Greek wines continues to grow, so does the interest to try them amongst consumers. Throughout the last decades Greek wines have struggled to break the barrier of being accepted into the mainstream of offerings. They have often been placed at the back of wine shops in undesirable sections labeled as ‘others’ collecting dust and were almost non-existent in restaurants, unless it was a Greek taverna. They would rarely get rated amongst the wine media authorities such as Wine Spectator or Wine Advocate. And when they did make a rare appearance, their ratings were not favorable.

This natural wine has a lot to offer with very little involvement. This wine truly defines the term raw wine. Made from 100% of the white variety, Vidiano. Nothing else goes into this production other than the grapes and it’s natural yeast.
