Roditis Maison Ligas, organic white wine from Pella, Greece, Natural wine, low sulphur, outstanding flavours, unique wine. 100% Roditis from Ligas, a superb young Greek wine producer making fabulous natural wines in the Pella region. The 100% Roditis wine made from the indigenous grape of the Pella is a wine that intrigues the palate. The variety was highly valued in ancient Greece due its ability to ripen late whilst maintaining its acidity. It was very susceptible to the Phylloxera that swept Europe in the 19th century and its plantings hugely decreased. This natural wine from Roditis has lovely nutty, mango and exotic fruit aromas and flavours with subtle resinous notes and underlying earthiness. This is an amazing wine for washed rind cheese and richer fish and white meat dishes.

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!'
