EVERYTHING FLOWS The Greeks knew it as kinesis: the never-ending flow of the world, the ever-becoming of all things. Light and wind, dancing together with the waters, impress themselves upon the earth that bears the vine that yields the cluster, which in turn is transformed into wine, which gifts us pleasure and beauty. In an instant, chaos returns to pure harmony … is this what we call happiness?

The heat, however, did slow the grapes development therefore we had an average harvest’s epoch which began on September 1 and ended on October 27. We immediately recognize the potential of an absolutely promising vintage when we saw the grapes quality brought to the cellar. The whites wines show enveloping and caressing fruit features
