A lack of manipulation and few days of skin contact allows the Greek terroir to show its true expression in this orange wine. We get lemon and vibrant citrus on the nose. Full and rich palate followed by a long honey aftertaste.

Pairing Suggestions: Salad, Grilled Fish, Greek Gyros

Sicily, Italy

Oenogenesis was founded in 2006 and is owned and operated by one of the greatest oenologists of Greece, Bakis Tsalkos. Bakis was trained and experienced in Montpellier and Bordeaux for most of his life, and returned to Greece in 1985 to adapt his knowledge to the local terroir and grapes. He single-handedly launched the winemaking region of Drama, the youngest of Greece, which dominated the domestic market in the 90’s and early 2000. Drama is known for its elegance and aromatic expression in wines, as well as its optimal terroir for international grapes. Bakis’ principle is the absence of anything chemical, with as little intervention or spraying in the vineyard, and vinification of the highest standards. Sulfites are kept below organic standards levels. At least 85% of grapes grow in estate owned vineyards.-Eklektikon.
