Samos VDN

Where does it come from?

The fresh label V.D.N just released by the Unified Wine Cooperative of Samos that has a unique explosive character, where it encapsulates all the senses due to the freshness and unique taste of ripe stone fruit, such as peach and apricot. The sweetness is delicate, discreet, with a gentle profile and notes of honey to give a taste richness and a duration that impresses.

The variety...

The need of Muscat White grape for sunlight is essential. It thrives when the sun warms up its small berries, bestowing on their thick skin a freckle-dotted yellow-gold colour and uniquely concentrating the variety’s aromas and flavour. As a result, small-berried Muscat White yields dessert wines of international stature (“Muscat of Patras”; “Muscat of Rio Patras”; “Muscat of Rhodes”; “Muscat of Samos”; and “Muscat of Cephalonia”).


The winery...

The UWC Samos is one of the oldest cooperatives in Greece and it is included in one of the biggest wineries nationally! Samos wine is one of the basic “Greek wine ambassadors” abroad, with exports all over the world. Nowadays, 2200 producers participate in the Cooperative as members.

It was founded in 1934 after actions taken by the vine growers of the island.  The history of the Samos Cooperative through time proves that the alliance of the vine growers was a strategically important move for the preservation of viticulture and the protection of the producers’ income.
