Edouard and Eleni believe you can only make great wine if you are close to the vines. So, they have kept things small: under 5 hectares (the family Domaine is nearly 10 times that).

A few weeks ago we got together and challenged ourselves to blind taste 3 wines in just 3 minutes. As always it was humbling and fun! This is just a small taste of us blind tasting CVNE's Monopole Classico because it inspired us to feature this wine in our Newsletter again. It is terrific!
