Our unique orange wine (aka skin-contact white wine) is made in the ancient style, but with a modern twist. The Roditis grapes are not pressed, instead, this amber wine is made of 100% free-run juice. It’s then wild-fermented in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts, at 69-73ºF with grape skin contact for 10 days. The wine is aged on its lees with bâtonnage for five weeks before it’s ready.
Our bold, cider-like orange wine pairs well with equally bold foods and flavors.
Make stress ancient history. Escape to the cradle of Western Civilization with Rodi Rosé. Yasou!
A Thessaloniki native, Thomas Anastou's relationship with wine began with a 900-year-old collection of poems by Omar Khayyam — the "Poet of Wine.” He’s now spent half of his life as a specialist working in the industry. After serving in the Greek navy, he earned a scholarship to attend National Metsovio Polytechnic, where he graduated first in his class with a Bachelor of Science in Enology and Beverage Technology.
Our Roditis grapes are grown and hand-harvested in Naoussa’s continental climate in vineyards nestled among ancient ruins in the Vermio Mountains. Roditis wines are quite terroir-driven; the unique soil allows for more integrated grapevine root systems, which produces the highest-quality grapes.
