Overview of the Wine
This small wine region within Greece has family owned wine grape-growers and owners that strive in producing the best quality Xinomavro Wines out there! They were recognized as a wine growing region of Greece in 1971 with the PDO Naoussa designation.  This means those wines with this designation is reserved for those wines produced from select Xinomavro grapes, grown in a specific way and with a specific yield in the approved-growing Naoussa zone. 

Since 2005, Apostolos has been on a mission to define what Greek wines represent to the world; in bygone days, the wines of Northern Greece (and specifically Naoussa) were thought to be highly tannic with bracing acidity that needed prolonged time in barrel in order to be palatable. Apostolos disagreed, and with the introduction of Uranos in 2005, the Modern Greek wine movement began! Thymiopoulos Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery that follows biodynamic farming principles, allowing the grapes to express the rocky, granite and schist terroir with as little intervention as possible. Apostolos’ focus is on using only the native yeasts for fermentation and using larger neutral oak barrels in order to bring the varieties fruit flavors and terroir expressions to the forefront.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Warm climate tempered by the Mediterranean winds and by the air flowing down from Vermio mountain play a determinant role in the ripening period, protecting the grapes by maintaining low temperatures. High altitude and big diurnal range around Fytia village add complexity and finesse to the blend.
