I just love wines from Amyndeon and Florina Greece. Ask for them! #winesofgreece #winesofamyndeonandflorina

I love the wines from the Amyndeon and Florina wine regions of the province of Macedonia. Being in the northwestern part of Greece, the region is cooler than other parts of the country and with the high altitude, and surrounding mountains and lakes, it possesses a microclimate very suitable for grape growing.

TYPICAL TASTING NOTES OF REDS

Many of their reds are perfect to complement BBQ or Pizza, They are wine-enthusiast’s wines. Typically, you’ll find elegant notes of red and dark berries, along with blueberries, chocolate and a hint of spice. Structured. Perfect balance of ripe tannins. The reds often remind me a little of wines from Southern Rhone, with Grenache-like aromatic seduction. You’ll find the wonderful Xinomavro, often blended with varietals like Merlot, Syrah and others.

The wines are grown at altitudes up to 600 metres in sandy and other soils. The climate is cool in winter and warm in summer. These conditions contribute to rich aromas.
