Located at the foot of the Meteora Rocks and around the prehistoric Cave of Theopetra, where signs of human existence and evolution date back to the Palaeolithic Era. In 1996, the Tsililis family founded the Theopetra Estate, a now iconic winery, with the aim of reviving the vineyard to its former glory following the Phylloxera outbreak of the early 20th Century. The family combines historical tradition with cutting-edge technology in their desire to revive rare Greek grape varieties while respecting the natural environment around them.

Limniona is a native Greek variety originating in Thessalia, in Northern Central Greece. The grapes for this wine are harvested and sorted by hand, followed by the gentlest of pressings, so that the juice extracted from the grapes is of the highest quality without any bitterness that is associated with mechanically crushed grape seeds. The wine is aged in 90% French Oak and 10% American Oak for twelve months and then bottle-aged for a further twelve months prior to release.

This is a supple, elegant, and complex red with fruity aromas of cherry, raspberry, sweet quince, and dried figs complemented by hints of nutmeg, clove, and black pepper spice. Silky tannins with ripe, red berry flavours on the palate and a long finish. Try with slow roasted lamb with a garlic and rosemary crust.
