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 this regional varietal, limniona, that almost disappeared generations ago. Grown in soils of sandy clay and flint in a hot, dry climate, Christos’s limniona ferments with indigenous yeasts in large wooden tanks and ages in barrel. Bright and brambly without being too earthy, this obscure Greek varietal offers black raspberry and pomegranate. Medium in body but would be fantastic slightly chilled. Certified organic.
