If you haven’t already, it’s time to pay attention to Greek wines. Greece has an ancient wine history during which the drink of Dionysus was an important part of ceremonies and rituals. The tradition has not been interrupted, so interesting autochthonous tastes come to us from this country. Greek wines are made from grapes that absorb a lot of sunlight.
In this offer we present selected wines from the wineries Ktima Pavlidis and Semeli.
The Ktima Pavlidis winery, which got the award for the best red wine in the Balkans in 2012, refers you to its Thema wines, created in the Drama region of northern Greece. The goal of the winery is to produce top quality wines that have unique characteristics of that area. In order to fulfill it they planted 65 hectares of vineyards that remained in private ownership. Both domestic and international grape varieties are developed in them.
The geographical position and climate of the region offer ideal conditions for growing vines and producing the highest quality wines from the internationally known varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Assyrtiko and Syrah.
Thema white wine has a light yellow-green color. It starts with an intense aroma of exotic fruits and citrus, continuing with a mixture of white pepper and minerality. It is ideal with seafood, fish and salads.
Theme red wine has a dominant aroma of cherries and plums, followed by the aromas of chocolate, smoke and vanilla. It is ideal with grilled red meat, venison and spicy cheeses.
Rose wine Thema with an elegant aroma of strawberry and raspberry is great as an aperitif and ideal with almost all dishes of Mediterranean cuisine.
