GRIFOS 3

The name of the wine was inspired by the ancient era and geometry, two concepts immediately connected with winemaking.

The three eternal conundrums or brain-teasers of the Ancient Greek mathematicians are shown on the labels of these three Vlassides wines, enticing us to discover them: Doubling the cube – Trisecting the angle –  Squaring the circle.

GRIFOS 3. Squaring the circle

The rosé Grifos is produced by blending two classic varieties used to make rosé wines around the world.

The grapes of the two varieties of rosé Grifos, Shiraz and Grenache are grown in non-irrigated vineyards in Kilani and Pachna. Both varieties are vinified at the same time.

Grifos 3 is best enjoyed fresh and cool at 10-12°C.
