About the wine
Thanks to the refreshing morning breezes from the Ambracian Gulf, the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are able to achieve full maturity in spite of the high summer temperatures. The breezes are enhancing those black fruits with spicy tones reminding one of Syrah, as well as a finish of olive paste.
Suitable to accompany cooked meat and venison.
Recommended drinking temperature: 16-18 °C
About the Region
Town: Amfilochia (in the northwestern part of Aetolia-Acarnania in Greece)
The Greek tradition in wine dates back at least 3000 years. The significance of the Acarnanian earth in high quality wine making was already mentioned in ancient Greek mythology. Oeneus, king of the city Calydon (in modern Aetolia-Acarnania), is said to have introduced wine making in the area. According to a legend he received the initial branch of grapevine from god Dionysus himself.
