The Gentilini vineyards are located around the winery, near the village of Minies on Kefalonia, and started out in 1978 with just half a hectare under vine. We have since expanded and now farm over ten hectares of vineyards that are planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Moschofilero, Syrah, Muscat and Mavrodaphne. We also manage two vineyards planted with the local Robola and Tsaoussi. The soil is chalky and shallow above a bedrock of limestone, which is the best type of terroir for fine wine making. All of these vineyards are farmed organically and have been fully certified by the DIO agency. Although the vineyards are close to the sea, they are protected by a hill that slopes down from the cliff top. The proximity to the sea and unusual protection create a unique microclimate ensuring the development of terroir concentrated aromas and finesse in the wines.
Made entirely from Robola of Kefalonia, an increasingly rare, ungrafted, noble grape variety. The grapes are sourced from high-altitude, extremely lowyielding vineyards within the PDO zone. Quantities are limited to 30,000 bottles each year.
