Pandrosos 2018Wine Advocate 2019: 92/100“The 2018 Pandrosos is οne of the most powerful wines here, this grips the palate with its acidity. The fruit is lifted and slammed back down onto the tongue. For all of that, it isn't just an acid freak. The mid-palate is closer to average in depth, but it certainly fleshes out as it warms up. It shows the body to hold up to foods. The wine is also focused and the fruit is expressive. The grape blend adds the predictable aromatic hit that makes this refreshing even if you just smell it—there are touches of grass and eucalyptus”.

Jancis Robinson 2019: Foivos Pandrosos 2018: 16,5/20: “Pandrosos has a tantalising wild, sour aroma of dried grasses and green fruits. Incredibly dry and high in acidity thus with a mouth-watering finish (the level of residual sugar is well judged). You have to be an acid freak to love this wine but it has terrific purity and precision and would be a great food wine, if a little challenging on its own”.

Domaine Foivos

Foivos winery is the historical continuation of the Mantzavino Winery, which starred in the past two centuries in the world of wine, and made Greek wine known internationally. It is one of the oldest operating winery in Greece and has already produced, since last century, some of the best Greek wines that became known worldwide. Since 1999, a new dynamic effort has begun, severely restricting production quantities, and mainly making exclusively use of the excellent indigenous and autochthonous own-rooted varieties of the Kefalonian vineyard, and of the ideal microclimate of Kefalonia.

In the Domaine Foivos vineyards are cultivated with very mild methods and biodynamic approaches, rare clones of ancient grape varieties such as Mavrodaphne, Muscat, Muscatel, Tsaousi, Vostilidi, Thiako, Araklino. At the same time, the winery manages vineyards in the eastern part of the island, in the region of Omala, for the production of the well-known local variety Robola of Cephalonia. 

A special feature of Foivos winery is the aging of wines under water: Since 2016 the winery started experimental searches of the maturing of wine under water, by immersing bottles for aging in the sea. At the same time, it applies another one innovative method of aging and maturing wines, by submerging bottles under fresh water, in special tanks of the winery, allowing the wine to mature and complete under absolute conditions of constant temperature, darkness and absence of oxygen!
