Alpha Estate, founded in 1997 by renowned enologist Angelos Iatridis, is one of the most respected estates in all of northwestern Greece. Situated at very high altitude (600-700m ASL) in the sandy Amyndeon plateau, the estate’s vines deliver wines of vivid, punchy fruit and bright, crisp acidity, especially in the hands of Iatridis’ laser-precise farming and winemaking. Amyndeon is noted for its Xinomavro (and in fact is the only historical appellation for rosé in Greece), but Iatridis also excels with XMS (Xinomavro-Merlot-Syrah, Greece’s answer to ‘GSM’) red blends and, naturally, given the climate, whites. His Malagousia is a delight and his Sauvignon Blanc is the most sought-after in Greece, hands down. (Not surprising, given that his Bordeaux university thesis was written on it!)

The Hedgehog Vineyard Xinomavro is a pure expression of the grape, whose profile calls to mind the spice of Syrah and the structure of Italy's Nebbiolo. Enjoy a bottle with grilled meats, charcuterie, or mezze.
