A luscious blend of three Greek indigenous varietals, where jammy blackberry aromas combine with hints of spice. Perfumed and polished, this smooth, medium bodied wine has bags of mouthwatering, juicy plummy fruit leading to a dry finish and is totally unique.

Domaine Gerovassiliou Avaton was described by Andrew Neather, London Evening Standard, as "From the local varieties of mavrotagano, limnio and mavroudi, this is for my money as a serious a Greek red as you'll come across... Excellent."

Evangelos Gerovassiliou was born in the village of Epanomi in 1951 and comes from a family with a strong tradition in agriculture viniculture. His education included studies at the School of Agronomy at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki where he has also taught until recently.

Evangelos then left for France where he continued his education at Bordeaux University where he graduated with degrees in Oenology, Wine Tasting and Viniculture and Technology of Oenological Machinery. During the years he lived in Bordeaux, Gerovassiliou assisted Emile Peynaud in his tastings of the Bordeaux chatêaux wines.
