Unveiling some of the Xynisteri 2011, a wine tasting announcing another great vintage.
The trio of wines unveiled recently at Risto La Piazza, with Vasos Manolis, brought some reassurance of the great work that winemakers have done over the winter in overcoming the shortcomings of the Xynisteri harvest conditions this past year. An over all very satisfying feeling how these wines are being embraced locally too.

At this time of the year, one never knows how busy schedule of a winemaker can produce. Just finding a moment is a privilege, and if this wine hour spent leads to stimulating conversations over great wine, then it’s fulfilling and priceless.
Tasting recently bottled Zambartas wines, full and vibrant, one will recognize the consistancy and the mark of the wines but also feel the winemaker’s desire to surpass himself from previous vintages.
