Discover the terroir of Naoussa For Two

The PDO Naoussa wine production zone was first established in 1971. Amid a gorgeous natural setting around the picturesque town of Naoussa and overlooking the Gulf of Thermaikos, the city of Thessaloniki and Halkidiki peninsula, there lies the PDO Naoussa. The climate is temperate Mediterranean, with continental influences, cold winters and relatively hot summers. Most of the vineyards extend on the south-eastern slopes of Vermio at an altitude ranging from 150-400m. The diversity of terrains, altitudes, aspects and soils on the hilly slopes of Mt Vermio, result in significant differences among the vineyard sites and, thus, allow for the existence of many smaller distinct terroirs. The soils show great variation, even within the same vineyard.

According to legislation, PDO Naoussa applies exclusively to red wines, produced from 100% Xinomavro. The stylistic spectrum is rather varied as a result of the diversity of the different available terroirs. In general, the PDO wines display pale colour, high level of tannins, which needs time to soften, and high acidity. The aromas range from fruits such as strawberry and sour cherry to vegetal characteristics such as tomato and olives, sweet spices and some floral notes.
