Domaine Glinavos Ioannina IGP Vlahiko 2009
Made from two red indigenous grape varieties called Vlahiko and Bekari, this is a true rare find from the semi-mountainous regions of eastern Greece. Lefteris Glinasvos studied in Bordeaux in the 1960s and returned to his homeland in the 70s to bring back the great indigenous grapes in the Zitsa Ioannina region. Lefteris Glinavos was part of the wave of boutique vintners that were instrumental in changing the entire face of Greek wine‐making during the 1970s. At Domaine Glinavos they have underground cellars located 6 meters below ground, built out of stone and has the ability to accommodate 400 oak barrels. The grapes are hand harvested, destemmed and vinified in oak vats. The vinification is performed using a classic method that lasts for 12 days. Then, the aging takes place in oak barrels for two years creating a unique bouquet.
