Winery Oktana

Varietal: Agiorgitiko

The Agiorgitiko grape varietal has been grown in the Nemea region of the Peloponnese mountains for thousands of years, and is now one of the flagship grape varietals of the Greek wine industry. It is most commonly associated with strongly fruit-forward red wines, full of spicy notes and plummy, dark fruit flavors However, its low acidity often means it is blended with grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, to produce wines more suited to modern palates. One of the main features which makes Agiorgitiko grapes so popular with wine makers is the fact it grows in very arid and infertile land, and responds very well indeed to winery techniques and viticultural methods. As such, there are a wide range of wines made from the Agiorgitiko grape, including soft and rounded bottles, and also dry and tannic wines which are enjoyed in many countries around the world.

Country: Greece

It is almost impossible to understate the importance of local and regionally produced wines in Greek culture. Across the country, from the cities of the mainland to the villages, mountainous regions and islands, wine is produced using traditional methods and native grape varietals, and is drank in households and taverns, either accompanying the much loved local cuisine or alone as a refreshment under the blazing Mediterranean sunshine. For wine lovers around the world, Greece is known for producing several wines with something unique and interesting to offer, a refreshing change from the norm filled with surprises and complex, occasionally challenging or unusual flavors and aromas. Thanks to the vast range in terrain across the archipelago, Greek wine is as varied as it is delicious, meaning there is plenty to explore and enjoy from this fascinating and ancient country.
