CORFIOT WINES

 

The natural environment, completely at one with the local varieties of grape that flourish here, has created a wide ecosystem in which the conditions for viniculture are practically ideal. So it is hardly surprising that the sun drenched isle of Corfu has a wine-making tradition that goes back many years.

 

 

 

The most popular wine types in Corfu
   

Kakotrigis

Quite a few grape varieties in the Ionians have black, red, and white variants, and one of particular note is the kakotriyis of Corfu. As with white kakotriyis wines, one should seek the Ano Lefkimi red wines of Koulouris winery for youth and fragrance, and the Grovino red of Vasilakis in central Corfu for age and oak and even some finesse. Kakotriyis is joined with petrokoritho in Theotoki Roppa rosé. All of these wines promise the tourist hedonistic enjoyment with Corfu’s meat-and-macaroni pastitsada. An engaging, dry, lightly flavored white wine. This wine is widely produced.

   

Petrokoritho

A dry red (brousko) wine, a product of Sinarades village.

   

Fraoula

A strong heavy red wine. A table grape which, even though it does not belong to the usual wine-producing varieties, is in fact used to make wine in many households.

   

Moschato

Cultivated with particular success in the region of Strinilas on Pantocrator. It yields a particularly fragrant white wine.

   

Martzavi

A dry mellow wine made from dark red grapes with heavy taste, known as black Corfiot wine. Other varieties which complete the wine map of Corfu are the "rozaki", the "pheidia", the "kokkinomousitsa:, the "xipleko", the "Arkadino", the "Koryianitis", the "Afioni", the "Agoumastos", the "alepoura" and the "Pinpiniola" - grapes which are usually mixed during production with those mentioned above.
