The variety...

Mouchtaro is a very rare indigenous dark-skinned grape variety of Central Greece. Until recently it could only be found in Askri Valley, where the old bush vines produce low yields of concetrated grapes. The high demand for white instead of red wines and the low yields that the variety tends to produce in the arid slopes under the mountains, are responsible for its near extinction, as growers favoured other local varieties. As a grape that can withstand the heat, more and more producers of Central Greece turn lately to Mouchtaro.

Discover the unique character of the grape by choosing one of Cinque’s wine tastings or enjoy it by the glass at wine bars in Athens.
