Winery in the spotlight
Apostolos Thymiopoulos, master of Xinomavro.
The centre of Northern Greek viticulture is around the small town of Naoussa. There, Apostolos makes wine on the basis of the local Xinomavro grape in a splendid way. It is a delicate varietal, giving wines with less than usual colour, yet with a firm structure. These are wines for the long haul, somewhat similar to the Italian Nebbiolo. Thymiopoulos produces two reds: one based on his young vines (Young Vines Red) and the other on the old vines. That wine is called Earth and Sky and can be cellared for many years. Both outstanding Greek wines!
