It comes from organic grapes of about 35-40 years old xinomavro vines. The grapes were harvested in early September followed by cryopreservation at 12 degrees Celsius for 5 days with the skins. The aim was to get the red color with as few aggressive tannins as possible. The skins were then removed and fermented for 17 days at 18 ° C. The wine was left in the tank for 10 days with its fine wines and then a coarse filter was applied to remove the excess lees. It was placed in another tank where it began the process of secondary fermentation. Secondary fermentation lasted about two months with the ultimate goal of producing carbon dioxide for foam production. At a final pressure of 5.2 bar, the acidity and the addition of must were adjusted and then bottled at 2 ° C. The production amounts to 6,000 bottles. The alcoholic tittle is 12.5% ​​vol.

It has color red ruby color ​​with violet hues. A fruity bouquet impresses on the nose. Raspberry, ripe cranberry, with notes of freshly ground pepper. On the palate it is full, round and it perfectly supports the thousands of bubbles that conquer the oral cavity. A long explosive aftertaste closes the organoleptic feast of flavors and aromas.

Domaine Tarala

The Tarala family's involvement with wine dates back to the beginning of the last century. Nikolaos Taralas, grandfather of D. Taralas, who came from Eastern Romulia, has been involved in grapevine grafting, production and winemaking since the early 20th century. In 1925 Christos Taralas, father of D. Taralas, who settled in Ag. Barbara Imathia, utilizing his family's knowledge of the vineyard and wine, set up a business to produce, vinify and market the products of the vineyard in the city of Veria. Today, part of the equipment of the company is preserved, which included, among other things, wooden barrels with a capacity of 6.5 tons each and linen of 20 tons. The amount that was distributed before the war is estimated at about 250 tons of wine. However, during World War II, property was confiscated by the occupiers and the end of the operation and the natural person took place. Following this tradition and his love for wine, Dimitrios Taralas, an employee of the Bank of Greece, at the same time did not stop cultivating and vinifying a small amount of wine as an amateur. After his retirement, wanting to revive his family's history because it was a dream come true, he decided to set up a state-of-the-art winery with the help of his family, his wife Aspasia Tarala and his twin children, Christos and Nicoleta Tarala. The Tarala winery was founded by the family of Dimitrios Taralas in 2006, which has undertaken the cultivation of the privately owned organic vineyard of approximately 100 acres today and the production of wines of exceptional quality.
