Katogi & Strofilia S.A.
Yiniets vineyards are Greece’s highest; clinging to the slopes of Mount
Pindus in an area where
the seasons have
a rhythm of their own, the vines
mature slowly. Yiniets, which means ‘vineyard’
in the local Vlach
dialect, is planted with
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc,
Noir and Traminer. The grapes are usually harvested in early to mid
October; it’s as though
Dionysus, the god of wine, wanted to keep
these mountain vineyards in Epirus till last.
