Not far from Domaine Nerantzi’s vineyards in eastern Macedonia (northeastern Greece), archaeologists have found pottery used for storing wine from 4400 BCE: the oldest evidence of winemaking in Europe. Despite the deep history of wine in the region, the Serres area gained status as an “appellation of origin” only two decades ago, thanks in large part to the work of vintner Nerantzis Mitropoulos and his family. They are committed to organic farming practices and take particular advantage of the Strymon valley’s alternating daytime sea breeze and cool evening offshore wind. Their assyrtiko comes from a small plot, vinified in stainless steel and bottled with minimal sulfur. Bright and lively, with a mouthwatering saltiness on the palate, it combines apple, honey, and citrus elements, with a hint of green olive on the finish. Certified organic, vegan.
