Naoussa Greek Wine Pairing Dinner
Enjoy a 5-course dinner with outstanding Xinomavro wines from the town of Naoussa in the hills of Macedonia in Northern Greece, a region recognized for its superior quality since the 1970’s.
For those less familiar, Xinomavro is an indigenous Greek grape varietal, one of four ‘ambassador’ grapes of the country alongside Assyrtiko, Moschofilero and Agiorghitiko. Literally meaning acid (Xinos) and black (Mavros), Xinomavro has been gaining in popularity the world over thanks to publicity efforts of the European Union and Greece.
