The Troupis family has been farming since the 1970s, growing fruit trees, flowers and grapes. Back then, the grapes were used to make their personal supply of wine and anything remaining was sold off. It wasn't until 2010 that they decided to devote all their energy to winemaking, upgrading their facilities and equipment and eventually becoming a name to know in the ever evolving Greek wine industry. Their winery is situated in the Fteri ("fern") region of the Mantinia plateau at an altitude of 700m. This location has a microclimate particularly well suited to the native varieties moschofilero (their most planted grape) and agiorgitiko (pronounced aye-yore-yee-tee-ko). Troupis "Fteri Agiorgitiko" is a fruit-forward red with notes of pomegranate, caramel and spice along with velvety tannins and refreshing acidity. It's food-friendly but if you're making braised meat in tomato sauce this would be the way to go. Best enjoyed with a light chill.
