Apart from Greece’s world-renowned and distinguished gems—Assyrtiko Santorini, Moschofilero Mantinia, Nemea Agiorgitiko, and Xinomavro Naoussa / Amynteo—there are several new, up-and-coming grape varieties which, depending on the type and style of wine they yield, show impressive potential and seem to be but a step away from having themselves acclaimed and established in worldwide wine affairs.
Among these up-and-coming grape varieties are some of established status which are now being approached from new angles. Mavrodaphne is an example of such a variety. Although well-known and long-established as Greece’s native variety for the production of sweet wines, its vinification for the production of dry red wines is a relatively uncharted yet quite promising territory which firmly re-classifies Mavrodaphne as being among the up-and-coming grape varieties.
George Karelas is undoubtedly one of the best producers of the classic sweet red fortified P.D.O. Mavrodaphne of Patras and his wines have been receiving many distinctions & awards at the most prestigious wine competitions around the world.
Taking a step beyond, George vinified Mavrodahpne grapes with a bit of Merlot which is cultivated in the region of western Achaia in vineyards that overlook the Ionian Sea (Pelagos) and gave to Mavrodaphne an all new perspective.
The wine is wonderfully smooth & round, its deep red color catches the eye, while the aromas of red berries dominate in the nose and has an aftertaste to remember.
You may have tasted many Greek wines along the way, but I am sure that Pelagos will positively surprise you.

We have recently been in the city of Dusseldorf for the annual "Prowein'' international wine & spirits exchibition and among other interesting things we had the pleasure to taste a little bit of Greece in the heart of Germany...
To be more specific, it wasn't just the cosy environment, or even the well cooked - home made - dishes, the small but wonderful wine selection - don't look on the wne list, just ask Sakis' advice - but mostly the warm hearted owners Sakis & his lovely wife Foteini who really made us feel like home.
While in Dusseldorf - for business or pleasure - don't miss the chance to drop by Meteora Greek Restaurant in Neuss and let Sakis & Foteini guide you to a "culinary journey" to Greece, filled with the traditionally warm Greek hospitality & smile.
Thank you guys !!

Snow, ice, sleet…then, more snow.
Need a way to lighten up the last few weeks of winter?
Anastasia Rose is crisp and full of succulent red berries, with an elegant texture and well-balanced acidity. With days ranging wildly from biting to pleasant, Anastasia Rose is perfectly versatile in food pairings from comfort to lighter fare.
Uncork a bottle of Anastasia Rose with anything from tuna to spring vegetable and goat cheese dip to chicken with prosciutto and balsamic.
Goodbye winter !!
