undefined, null

Native to the Peloponnese peninsula of Greece, Agioritiko is the star variety here and in fact, the only grape permitted to carry the Nemea appellation name. While it favors the hot Mediterranean climate of Greece, it performs best in Nemea’s high altitude mountain vineyards between 1,350 to 2,000 feet where fully ripe grapes can also achieve great acidity and structure.

Tasting Notes for Agioritiko

Perfect Food Pairings for Agioritiko
