Agiorgitiko (Greek: Αγιωργίτικο; also known as Aghiorghitiko, Mavro Nemeas and St. George) is a red Greek wine grape variety that, as of 2012, was the most widely planted red grape variety in Greece, ahead of Xynomavro. The grape has traditionally been grown in the Nemea region of the Peloponnese but can be found throughout the country including Attikí (Attica) and Makedonía (Macedonia).
Every year the Association of Friends of The American Farm School of Thessaloniki in Athens, they are raising money for a full scholarship of a student.
Their main source is an American bbq that the last two years, due to covid 19, was cancelled.
In this point its our contribution, since Nikitas, Cinque’s Oenologist and Sommelier, has graduated from the AFS. He chose 4 wines, under a special label, and from the sales we will give to the scholarship.
