This wine comes from non-irrigated, low-yield vineyards in Messinia, at an elevation of 800 meters.Old vines, long maturation in fine oak barrels and in bottle, result in a high vinous expression of Messinia’s land. Reflecting Messinia’s 3,500-year viticultural tradition, this wine has been named after the clay drinking cup, now widely known as Nestor’s Cup, found in the ancient Greek colony of Pithekoussai. In the Odyssey, Homer tells how wise King Nestor of Pylos received Telemachus and Athena by offering them wine in golden cups. WINE OF GREECE. CONTAINS SULFITES.
