That time of the week is nearly here again… you can enjoy any of our wines at takeaway prices all day on Tuesday. We’re talking delicious bottles of wine from £8.00- this is not a deal to miss!
Today we’re taking a look at Agiorgitiko, a fragrant red Greek wine grape variety. It is one of the country’s most widely planted wine grapes and although traditionally grown in the Nemea region, it can now be found across the country. It is an extremely versatile grape variety and is used to make everything from light roses to full-bodied, rich red wines. When it is not produced as a varietal wine, it blends beautifully with Cabernet Sauvignon. We’ve got two such wines on our menu namely, Cuvee Prestige 2013 by Skouras Winery (Agiorgitiko & Cabernet Sauvignon) Peloponnese and Erythros 2012 by Papagiannakos Winery (Agiorgitiko & Cabernet Sauvignon) Peloponnese.
Agiorgitiko means ‘St George’s Grape’ and is rumoured to be named after a chapel in Nemea. It is thought to be one of the oldest grape varieties in Greece and is associated with Hercules – Nemea wine is often called ‘the blood of Hercules’.
Why not swing by tomorrow for a bite and a glass or two!
