Details

Xi-Ro Jason Ligas also called Xiro, blend of Xinomavro and Roditis, fresh, natural red, aromas of tomato leaf and smoke, red fruits, can serve chilled! Delicious yet unusual light red wine, with a combination of dried and fresh red fruits, notes of spice, wild herbs, tomato, smoke and pine. Jason is a maverick wine maker, young, passionate and working naturally in an area where the history of wine making stretches back to ancient Greece. Combining the history, the local grape varieties and natural production have resulted in fascinating and very high quality wines which are taking the UK fine dining restaurants by storm! The Xi-Ro is a must for Gazpacho soup!


Since ancient times, the region of Pella in the Peloponnese, situated in northern Greece, was associated with wine making and described as the mother of wine, where vines abound. Jason Ligas took over this small vineyard from his parents and set about turning the normally dull Roditis grape into something very special. By converting to natural farming and reducing the yield he was able to express the terroir and the show the potential of a grape that is normally over cropped and used for cheap jug wine. The soils are loamy, sand with very good drainage and the natural environment is expressed in this stunningly fresh and complex white wine. The Cru wine is in tiny quantity, only 400 bottles of this wine are produced, grab it while you can! The other wines made by the Ligas estate are equally as impressive and offer a different spectrum of flavour to the traditional, well known grape varieties of France, Italy and Spain. Try these wines, they are really something.
