Limnio vines are known for their hardiness and ability to survive harsh droughts. The grapes have the ability to produce high must weights and are late ripening, making them the ideal variety for Greece. Here they are grown on schist soils at around 300 metres above the sparkling Mediterranean sea where the breezes and dry climate create perfect conditions for organic viticulture. The vineyards yield at a tiny 800 kilos per hectare, creating wines of intensity and structure.
