Xinomavro - in our opinion one of the most exciting greek varietals. This wine is for the Nebbiolo or Nerello Mascalese lover. Aromatic, floral and earthy with high acidity, generous tannin and quite striking length. This is a wine for now but also a wine that will evolve beautifully over the next 5-10 years....or perhaps more.
Domaine Ligas is a small family winery working with biodynamic and permaculture in the vineyards. They are located in the historic region of Pella, which is close to the city of Thessaloniki. The winery was established in 1985 but Thomas Ligas (the father), who is now assisted by his daughter Meli. The wines are made with low intervention, there is no filtration or fining, no use of sulphur in any part of the winemaking. They work with a number of grape varietals that are indigenous to the area.
