About Xinomavro: Xinomavro comes from the words xino (sour) and mavro (black). The grape is widely planted in the central and northern parts of Greece. It has similar characteristics to the Nebbiolo grape (high acidity and aggressive tannin) and sometimes referred to as the “Greek Nebbiolo.” It is a multi-faceted grape that is made into reds, dynamic rosés, aromatic sparkling wines, and even sweet wines.
