Notios (the southerner) consists of low-yield Agiorgitiko grapes from the hills around Nemea, in the Peloponnese of Greece. The viticulturist, Leon Karatsalos and winemaker, Yiannis Paraskevopoulos developed the Notios line in 1996. They have been bringing Greek varietals and methods into the modern age with small barrel fermentation, experimental blending and generally clean production. The Agiorgitiko grape is highly resilient to the Mediterranean heat and thrives in dry, infertile soil.
