A bit of a Greek freak; a semi-sparkling, semi-dry orange wine made with distinctive and totally traditional vinification. It is produced from the indigenous white wine grape variety Debina with the addition of a small percentage of the red variety Vlahiko. It’s superbly soft and drinkable with a light, balanced sweet sensation that will captivate the inner kid in you. The natural fizziness reveals the richness of flavours and aromas with a sweetness that blends in with all the other elements. 

Made from the local, indigenous grape Debina with a splash of Vlahiko, it spends 12 days macerating on its skins before it’s bottled in the middle of fermentation resulting in a funky, demi-sec, orange, lightly sparkling wine that defies categorization. Medium-bodied with light tannins, tangy spice notes and citrus peel balanced by a touch of honey blossom. It is a special type of wine, which revives the well-known traditional semi-sparkling wine of Ioannina, produced in the past by the locals.
