Where does it come from?

Roditis is an old indigenous grape variety that thrives in the Aigialeia Region. Our Roditis is exclusively sourced from privately owned vineyards located in dry steep slopes with northern exposure. Fermentation took place in controlled temperature at 16°C, while a secondary fermentation took place for 6 weeks to give the wine its rich aromas. The wine is distinguished for its rich fruity aroma, full body and long finish.

The variety...

Roditis is the most planted white grape variety in Greece. It is also the base for hundreds of “modest”—or less “modest”—and everyday white wines. This is perhaps the reason that the variety has been often characterized as “humble”. In actual fact, however, Roditis is neither a white variety, since its berries’ skin color veers to the reddish, nor is it “humble” since, under the right conditions, it can yield distinct and excellent wines. Moreover, given the fact that its wines are modestly priced, Roditis submits its candidacy to be nominated as the best “value for money” variety of the Greek vineyard.

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.

The winery...

Μ20 is a small family winery located in the Aigialeia region of the Northern Peloponnese. Utilizing exclusively small size tanks, modern equipment and the latest wine making techniques we are able to fully control all the stages of vinification but also we are able to locate and isolate those vineyards that produce excellent wines.

Our ultimate goal is to highlight and bring the best out of local grape varieties such as Roditis and Lagorthi while we also utilize other grape varieties that thrive in the excellent micro climate of the Aigialeia region.
