people love it!
This white wine was the people's choice from the 2011 Boston Wine Expo. We think it has something to do with the super cool story behind it. The grapes are grown on the island of Santorini, where there are no rivers, water is scarce and there are no trees to block the winds. Grape vines are slowly 'trained' to grown in spiral baskets close to the ground. Only grapes inside the baskets are allowed to grown (the others are trimmed) to protect them from the hot sun and strong winds. The minimum age of all the vines is 70 years - the length of time it takes to grow a basket that shields grapes from the elements. The wines are crisp with a bright acidity and have a cool, mineral component. Think; Greek Sancerre (French Sauvigon Blanc). Drink with the freshest fish you can find and dream of the sunny Mediterranean lifestyle!
