Producer: Zoinos Winery
Variety: Ντεμπίνα
Region: Ήπειρος

A unique and special white wine from the organic Debina variety, that is cultivated on the slopes of mountainous Zitsa from the 16th century.

SOIL: Calcareous soils with steep slopes, which provide them with good drainage from water.

VINIFICATION: Grapes are handpicked early in the morning, transported in small baskets and are then chilled in 8-10 oC in a pneumatic press. Classical white vinification takes place at low temperature fermentation to pronounce the varietal aromas of citrus, apple and cinnamon.

TESTING NOTES: It has pale straw yellow color with soft greenish tints and a persistent brilliant perlage. Fresh bouquet with notes of white flowers and green apple. Fine, stony, delicate palate, a moderate body, with notes of cinnamon at the finish

Zoinos Winery

Viticulture in Epirus and especially in Zitsa has a long history, with its wines enjoying a long-standing reputation, as its viticultural zone cultivates three endemic varieties (not only in neighboring countries, but even in nearby regions), white Debina and the red Vlach and Bekari. After all, Lord Byron, a famous philhellene and a leading representative of Romanticism, has the honor of being one of its singers.
