The best of Agiorgitiko,
-18% until Friday!



 Agiorgitiko is a wonderful, expressive and rather unpretentious variety. Fruity, direct and enjoyable, if it has been a movie, the creator of modern blockbusters Steven Spielberg would have directed it. The classical expression comes from the area of Nemea, though it has spread to the rest of the country as well, producing there equally fascinating examples.


 When the producers of Agiorgitiko get it right the result is unrivalled, by combining the deep fruity taste with a gentle palate and solid ageing potential of approximately ten years following the harvest. But, due to its great success and the frequent enthusiasm of producers for new oak, its quality has been fluctuating in recent years.


 We in Greece and Grapes we have selected, not the cheapest, but some of the best Agiorgitkos and we have grouped them according to style. Get your hands on some the most thrilling examples, offered until Friday with a 18% off.
