Overview of the Wine
The story of "Taralas Winery" has its own special interest, in many ways, as the Winery that is still in its adolescence has its roots in winemaking tradition of the Tarala family, going back to the early 20th century. The family, originating from Eastern Romulia, was grafted to the land of Imathia, when Nikolaos Taralas brought his viticultural knowledge to Greece. From him took the baton from his son Christos, who set up a production company, winemaking and marketing of wine products in Veria.
The quantity that Christos Taralas trafficked before the war is estimated at approximately 250 tons of wine. But during World War II they were confiscated

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
This is a great alternative for Barolo lovers! It is medium bodied and has a similar structure, refined tannins and a long persistent finish. Plus, we’ve already aged the wine so you don’t have to.
