"Wine is poetry in a bottle", wrote Robert Luis Stevenson. And we add: wine is history in a bottle. For the selective production of Pyrgos Petreza vineyards, that is exactly the case: every label has its history, and –since our wines are reserved exclusively for your events- their history becomes part of your own history. Cared for by expert viticulturists and wine experts, our wine adds another special drop in your memories.

With balanced taste, lively and sweet, it accompanies perfectly summer dinners, sushi, but also as an aperitif.
