Description

Robola is Kefalonia’s most well-known indigenous variety, producing fresh and aromatic citrussy wines. Grapes are harvested from 20 year old vines in Fragata, on the rocky limestone slopes of Mount Ainos at 600m altitude. Gentle pressing and fermented with wild, indigenous yeasts at low temperatures in stainless steel. 

The result is an incredibly fresh and pure wine of lemon appearance. Full of tension, the herbal and citrus aromas create a harmonious fusion through to a palate with lime citrus intensity and mouth-watering freshness. Try with fish, particularly tuna and salmon, Greek feta and olive salads, or dolmades (stuffed vine leaves).

The Foivos winery evolved from the historic Mantzavino winery, one of the oldest in Greece. The winery was bought in 1996, and in 1999 Theodorous Orkopoulos produced his first vintages. The winery specialises in rare Greek varieties as well as the better known Robola. The grapes are farmed organically and biodynamically, and Foivos explore alternative winemaking practices such as fermentation in Amphora and ageing under water. This winery is making some excellent terroir-driven wines that rank among some of Greece’s finest. 

Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
