Lamda Maison Ligas IGP Macedoine, Orange wine, natural wine, Assyrtiko, full bodied, soft enveloping stone fruits, wild herbs, notes of balsamic and pine, fantastic with Greek foods. The blended white made by the Ligas family has a little more body and intensity than the straight Roditis and the Assyrtiko adds more complexity to the wine. The warm stone fruits and aromas of Greek countryside are there and the body and depth of flavour, the hallmark of Ligas wines make this a delicious wine for rich foods and strong cheeses. Ligas really are becoming experts at skin contact white wines and Lamda is no exception, deliciously complex, rich and yet still very fresh and approachable. This wine is unfined and unfiltered, and has no added sulphites.

Since ancient times, the region of Pella, situated in northern Greece, not far from the border with Macedonia was associated with wine making and described as the mother of wine, where vines abound.

Jason Ligas and his Sister Meli continue the work of their Father Thomas and have succeeded in turning the normally dull Roditis grape into something very special.  Thomas Ligas converted to natural farming in the 80s after following the ideas set out by renowned Japanese farmer and philosopher Masanobu Fukuoka (1913-2008).  Fukuoka's approach to agriculture was called, ‘do nothing'.  He was a Japanese researcher in plant pathology who subsequently became an experimental farmer and promoter of natural farming.  His philosophy has also been described as ‘Steiner without cow horns’ 

Thomas Ligas followed Fukuoka's teachings.  By reducing the yield of his grapes through natural farming, he was able to express the terroir and show the grapes potential.  The soils are loamy-sand with very good drainage.  The natural environment is expressed in Ligas' stunningly fresh and complex white wines.  The reds are pretty rare and only made in good years but are also wines to be savoured. The wines all carry a unique personality and expressive aroma which we have come to call 'The Ligas Nose!'
