About the Grape: Roditis is a pink-skinned grape variety that is widely planted in Greece. Despite its pink grape color, Roditis is cultivated for the production of white wines—either varietal bottlings or used in blends. Roditis wines are quite terroir-driven as the grape is strongly influenced by where it grows. The best examples come from higher altitudes where there is a significant diurnal temperature shift and poor, well-drained soils.
