White dry wine; Protected Designation of Origin Kefalonia.

Robola of Kefalonia, from vines that grow on the slopes of mount Ainos. Gentle, cosmopolitan Kefalonian grape variety; in the centuries of Venetian rule, the wine was called "wine of stone" because the variety is growing and developing in the rugged slopes of Ainos!

Crystal color, sequence of well-spiced and fruity flavors, such as peach, lemon and apricot. Aftertaste with hints of citrus.

You can drink it alone as an aperitif or combine it with creative cuisine and sauces, fine fish and seafood, cheese and fruits.

                        Wine Advocate 2019: Robola 2018: 89/100: "The 2018 Robola Black Label finishes a touch tart and lemony, showing off                              freshness in its youth. It does come around with air and warmth nicely. It picks up weight and shows well. It should be a                              great summer refresher. At some point, the fruit might come out and be more expressive as well”.
                        Jancis Robinson 2019: Foivos Robola of Cephalonia 2018: 17/20 “ The aroma is equal parts herbal and citrus. Lime citrus                              intensity and mouth-watering freshness. Quite challenging on its own but would be great with fish or seafood. Deep and                                long, the acidity challenging but in balance with the intensity of the untamed fruit. Incredibly pure and full of tension.”

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!
