The first roots were planted in the mountainous Metsovon in the 60s. The winning varietal characteristics convinced many Greek winemakers to include it in the vineyards.
Its deep colour, high tanins, acidity and the black berry fruit aromas, have pursued many Greek wine drinkers to include it in their favorite wine list. Cabernet Sauvignon prefers cold temperatures. The wines produced from Greek Cabernet are reminiscent those from Bordeaux, from warm vintages. Balanced acidity and tannins, fruity, can be aged for up to 10 years.
