AKRITOS WINEThe Vineyard
In Western Lesvos, 1.5 km from the village Hidira towards Agra there is a small habitat. The area is located in the large ancient caldera of Vatousa. This is the location of Myrodies, where a small watercourse and the vegetation around create a unique ecological and aesthetic value. Bushes, forested hills, crops and colorful soils of volcanic origin compose a magnificent image of the area.
IntroducingThe Grapes varietals
This is the revival of the old variety that the locals simply called a wine grape. After the destruction of the vineyard of Lesvos by the phylloxera (insect) around the beginning of the 20th century, the only vines that survived were those that were planted on the volcanic rocks around the village of Hidira, West Lesvos…
WinemakerThe history behind the wine
The great reputation of Lesvos’ wines started in antiquity and were eligible such as the Mithymna’s wine which was considered the nectar of the Olympian Gods.
The reference to the famous Lesbian wine in the Homeric epic poems does not clearly express what the Athenian expresses to the Deipnosophistae, saying that: “The wine of Lesvos cannot be compared to any other.”
