Costa Navarino has delved into the world of vinification, and is now presenting its first wines, which were created by Navarino Vineyards in collaboration with acclaimed Greek vintners. The destination’s organic vineyards are located in an area covering 55
hectares. These old vines grow in an area that has ideal climate –a main characteristic of this location- which due to its temperature variation between morning and night, the right elevation and level of humidity is fit for producing grapes distinguished for their
excellence. The end result brings out the unique characteristics of the Messinian soil.
The series of wines aptly named 1827, due to the historical naval battle of Navarino, comprises of a white
wine combining Chardonnay with Roditis, and a red Cabernet Sauvignon. The Kotyle series –its name
inspired by a clay drinking cup known as King Nestor’s Cup- produces a white Chardonnay matured in a barrel
for 4-5 months. The vineyards have already made an entrance to the wine lists of well-known restaurants and also recently presented their version of the traditional Greek spirit, tsipouro, which combines Ugni blanc and Roditis
