Product Description

Melitino is an extremely rare dessert wine as it is the only one that is made from the variety Zakynthino. It is produce from a selected, privately owned old, self-rooted, pre-phylloxera vineyard and from sun-dried grapes. It is located in the village Mavrata in the southern Kefalonia and in an area with loam – sandy soils. The vines are traditionally formed in small bushes and are grown organically with no irrigation and by mild manual means.

Starting from the vineyard with strict pruning, late harvest and strict sorting, we use only the best grapes for our wine. Further concentration of sugars is achieved by short and indirect exposure of the grapes to the sun. Fermentation taking places as natural as possible so to let the land and the variety to express their personality. We have chosen not to use clarifiers and filters, in order to better preserve the authentic character of our wine.

Melitino is our confirmation to our persistence and obsession with the rare local varieties. It is a rare friend for the very best and unforgettable moments.
