Xinomavro from 25 years-old, non-irrigated and certified organic vines in Greece's Naoussa region growing at an altitude of 450-650 metres on schist and granite soils.

The Naoussa region has a warm continental climate, tempered by the cooling winds coming either from Vermio mountain or from the sea. Lower temperatures linked to high altitude, and big diurnal range during ripening season offer freshness and elegance to the wines.

Grapes are macerated for 18 days with a small percentage being whole cluster and are then fermented with indigenous yeasts for 1 to 3 months. The wine spends 8 months in French oak.
