New York Times calls it a well balanced wine with high tone aromas. Robert Parker describes it as a fine wine, graceful, displaying finesse and purity...we call it "step aside Pinot Noir!" as its complexity and intense rich tannins create an eye opening experience. Xinomavro is our favorite alternative red and very close to our hearts. When visiting the Kir-Yianni Estate in Naoussa it was evident that we stumbled upon a well thought operation with eclectic production in wines. There is no co-incidence in the fact that we carry several of this Estate's wines. From the warm hospitality to the excellence of wine making, Kir-Yianni's Estate will remain memorable. Ramnista is an amazing red for its value and definitely steps away from the usual red wine experience.

- Our new favorite red!
We tried this wine during a wine tasting in Northern Virginia and we were delighted to be able to find it to order. We really enjoy it especially with hearty meals.

- Wonderful Experience
I was torn between wines and placed a call to ask some questions. Alexia was very knowledgable and pleasant. After 10 minutes of phone conversation I had my sparkling selection ready and a few Ramnistas ready to go. Nice to see the Greek wines getting some respect.

- Awesome Red for the money!
I love red wines but I don't know much about Greek wines. As my wife was ordering some greek products she asked me if I wanted to try the Greek wines and I thought it was a great idea but not knowing anything about the wines I called the company. What a delight! I spoke with Alexia who told me she had actually visited most of the wineries they carry wines from and told me all about her Kir-Yianni experience. I love Pinot Noir so she suggested I try the Ramnista and I have to say I am extremely pleased. Not only I had the opportunity to get educated on Greek wines but I also had the pleasure to enjoy one of them. Next time we will try the Semeli Red. My wife loves the Cabernet wines and that we were told would be a great choice for our holiday table. Thank you for the great service and quality products.
