Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard.


Tasting Notes

An unoaked red wine made from the local Moschomavro grape variety. It comes from a little-known appellation of Siatista where vineyards have been abandoned and then revived for centuries. The city of Siatista is nestled on the slopes of Mount Siniatsiko. The soils of the vineyards are limestone-based which adds elegance and acidity to this ruby-hued red wine.

Staff Pick Notes

Don't let Greek wine intimidate you because the varieties are tough to pronounce. I often find that wines overlooked due to pronunciation anxiety are some of the most fun to drink. Case in point: Maschomavro (Moss-KOH-mah-vroh). This native grape grows on bush-trained vines in the mountainous, northern part of the country. The soil is chunky limestone, adding airy freshness to the wine. As opposed to some of the bolder red varieties grown in neighboring regions, this is pale and crunchy with zippy acid, and notes of cherry, pomegranate and dried raspberries. It's totally chillable, too. If you want an alternative to the more ubiquitous colors of wine consumed in the summer, or something with a bit more energy than the spicy, fuller bodied reds associated with winter, this variety is a sure bet.
