Listen to the podcast here:
Papagiannakos produces bright, expressive and delicious wines from local and international varieties. Perhaps the most compelling thing about Vassilis Papagiannakos philosophy is his dedication to single-varietal wines. Vassilis wants his wines to express precisely what the land of Attica will reflect in these grape varieties when carefully grown and vinified. Fascinating stuff with wonderful, world-class results.
This podcast was recorded with Vassilis at his award winning sustainable winery just outside Athens.
Savatiano are the flagship historical grapes for the region
Bush vine training is typical for Attica due to the small plots and lack of irrigation
