Panagiotis Dimitropoulos was the first Greek viticulturalist to receive Demeter Biodynamic certification, back in 2006. His five hectares of vines are dry-farmed on the top of a mountain said to have been moved by Hercules. He adapted the teachings of Steiner to Greece by looking at Australia, where the climate is closer to his home region, and using goat manure instead of cow manure, which is more readily available in Greece.

'Krãsis' is made from Mavrodafni, a Greek variety that is known as a black grape for its extremely dark color and high tannins. It is also more known for sweet wines, but Panagiotis makes it into a less-common dry version. Black tea, horehound, sassafras, iron, and leather are lifted up with mandarin orange notes and a tangy bite. Panagiotis says it has 'a cherry and strawberry jam bouquet with gentle earthy and animal hints." It's dark and textured but actually is thirst-quenching and easy to knock back. Jonathan Kemp
