Overview of the winery-
Christos Zafeirakis planted his first organic vineyard in 2005, in Tyrnavos (in the foothills of Mount Olympus, in the central Greek region of Thessaly), where his family has grown grapes for over a century. Christos is deeply invested in the winegrowing tradition of his region, including by bringing back a regional varietal, limniona, that almost disappeared generations ago. The area’s soils are primarily clay. Christos ferments with only indigenous yeasts. This assyrtiko fermented and aged in stainless steel. Gentle aromatics of vanilla blossom and meadow wildflowers waft over a creamy lemon curd palate. Certified organic.
