Artisans Vignerons de Naoussa is a cooperative that share a passion for growing Xinomavro in the vineyards scattered throughout the hills of the Náoussa region in Northern Greece. Their partnership is built on a shared philosophy of sustainable and organic viticulture and a respect for the traditions of the region. Náoussa is the birthplace of Ximomavro, which thrives in this varied landscape, dotted with forests and creeks, in the shadow of Mount Vermio.
Xinomavro roughly translates as ‘sour black’ and the grape is known for its dark colour, high acidity and big tannins. This example by the Artisans Vignerons de Naoussa cooperative from their younger vines has dark fruit, a herbacious note and a refreshing acidity with rounded well-structured tannins.
