    Winemaker Notes

    Must/wine-making at low temperatures helps preserve all the typical yet sensitive aromas of the Moschofilero grape. As a result Fteri Moschofilero is an intensely fragrant wine combining the bouquet of night-blooming jasmine, pomegranate and citrus fruits.

    Its excellent aroma and sharp taste make it a wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif as well as an accompaniment to dishes such as pasta with basil, chicken a la creme, grilled prawns and pies.

    Troupis Winery, Greece
    The Troupis family has a long history of work in agronomy dating back to the ’70s where vines, fruit baring trees and flowers have been grown and sold from their nursery in Mantinia. As with other traditional Greek families who make wine for their own table, their efforts in the cultivation of vines naturally grew into the desire to share their passion with others.

    Troupis Winery is located in the heart of Mantinia at an altitude of 700 meters in the region of Fteri or “fern”. Tasos Troupis, supported by his children, has created a production and wine-making facility by putting to good use the experience and love he has for the vine. It is a modern family business of small capacity, as they produce and bottle wine exclusively from their estate vineyards totaling approximately 16 acres.

    In the high altitudes of the central Peloponnese, the noble Moschofilero grape is cultivated producing the eponymously named AOC wine, Mantinia. The continental climate together with the soils of the high Mantinia plain, which are a well drained and clay-rocky lead to the production of exciting, aromatic white wines.

    Troupis’ crisp Moschofilero is fermented in stainless steel tank and displays the slight perfumes of the surrounding Arcadian underbrush and bramble. Rose, violets, spices and citrus fruit are wrapped in the intense acidity with which Moschofilero has become synonymous. Additonally, Agiorgitiko is sourced from the nearby Nemea region to make their fresh and lively red wines.

    A picturesque Mediterranean nation with a rich wine culture dating back to ancient times, Greece has so much more to offer than just retsina. Between the mainland and the country’s many islands, a wealth of wine styles exists, made mostly from Greece’s plentiful indigenous varieties. After centuries of adversity after Ottoman rule, the modern wine industry took off in the late 20th century with an influx of newly trained winemakers and investments in winemaking technology.

    The climate—generally hot Mediterranean—can vary a bit with latitude and elevation, and is mostly moderated by cool maritime breezes. Drought can be an issue during the long, dry summers, sometimes necessitating irrigation.

    Over 300 indigenous grapes have been identified throughout Greece, and though not all of them are suitable for wine production, future decades will likely see a significant revival and refinement of many of these native varieties. Assyrtiko, the crisp, saline variety of the island of Santorini, is one of the most important and popular white varieties, alongside Roditis, Robola, Moschofilero, and Malagousia. Muscat is also widely grown for both sweet and dry wines. Prominent red varieties include full-bodied and fruity Agiorghitiko, native to Nemea; Macedonia’s savory, tannic Xinomavro; and Mavrodaphne, used commonly to produce a Port-like fortified wine in the Peloponnese.

    Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
