This is a bright, crispy white wine made from 100% Debina. Native to the Epirus region of northern Greece, it's most commonly used to make sparkling wines. You can definitely imagine this variety being perfect for bubbles with its lively energy. Nine months on the lees give it a little body with notes of pear skin and saline. This is a nice complement to the zesty mineral details, bringing to mind a sort of 'mountain Muscadet.' Certainly would be perfect for the same types of fare, like oysters or asparagus. In the region of Eprius, closer to the mountains, it might be served with trout and lemon, or greens like wild fennel, nettle, spring onion, and mint.

Glinavos' patriarch is Lefteris Glinavos, who, in addition to being a former mayor of Epirus' main city Ioannina, was among the first group of 'boutique' winemakers in the 1970s who went against the large-scale cooperatives. Though Lefteris studied in Bordeaux, he returned to Epirus to work with local varieties like Debina and Vlahiko. His son Thomas now is in charge of the domaine's 20 hectares, which are farmed organically. [Jonathan Kemp, May 2021]
