Oenops was founded in 2015 by talented winemaker Nikos Karatzas, who produces a stunning range of distinctive wines from his newly established state-of-the-art winery. He sources indigenous and rare grape varieties grown on exceptional terroir focusing on cool-climate sites and old-vine plots, from carefully selected vineyards in Drama and Macedonia, which have been cultivated by ambitious winegrowers using an organic philosophy.

Niko adopts a minimal intervention approach and vinifies plot by plot using stainless steel, concrete, oak barrels, and amphora. His aim is to source great fruit and craft wines that reflect the nuances of the native varieties and the identity of the terroir and as a result, he produces a collection of authentic, elegant, and delicious wines. 

Grapes are chilled at 5°C and then are carefully sorted and pressed with a small percentage of whole clusters in a pneumatic press. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and concrete tanks, keeping each vineyard plot separate. After 2-4months of aging on its fine lees, the wine is ready for bottling.

A complex and refreshing rose from 3 of the most interesting Greek red varieties sporting light salmon color. Elegant notes of tangerine, ,orange, strawberries and white cherries dominate the nose followed by a fine hint of tomato, one of the unique aromas of Xinomavro. Full bodied and layered yet crispy, with aromas of strawberries and raspberries with a long, refreshing finish. A great Rose to enjoy it on its own or with several types of cuisine.

Serve as a great match for pasta, pizza, fish, salads and fruits. It is a wine of character, the perfect companion for aperitifs with friends and cheese platters to share.
An excellent accompaniment to Mediterranean and Greek dishes.
