Asprolithi

Rhoditis is the main Greek ethnological variety, famous since the 16th century.
Asprolithi is produced by the mountainous Rhodian of the Aegialia Plates, the ideal expression of the “red” pomegranate, that is, the clone of the colorful rosy roots, from which it is named.
Asprolithi has a greenish-yellow color and a fresh fruit aroma with pleasant doses of citrus on a metallic background, typical of the quality wines of the region.
Crisp acidity and freshness that balances the rich body of Roditis.
Harmonious, interesting development in the mouth, resulting in a pleasant and intense flavor.
Ideal wine for fish and seafood escorts as well as Mediterranean cuisine (feta, oil, small meats, white sauces).

Roditis

Roditis is the most planted white grape variety in Greece. It is also the base for hundreds of “modest”—or less “modest”—and everyday white wines. This is perhaps the reason that the variety has been often characterized as “humble”. In actual fact, however, Roditis is neither a white variety, since its berries’ skin color veers to the reddish, nor is it “humble” since, under the right conditions, it can yield distinct and excellent wines. Moreover, given the fact that its wines are modestly priced, Roditis submits its candidacy to be nominated as the best “value for money” variety of the Greek vineyard.

Cultivated throughout the land of Epirus, Roditis yields the PDO Patras wines, lends a hand to the PDO Anchilaos and PDO Slopes of Meliton whites, and is part of the blend in countless PGI wines. Admittedly, it does emerge as watery and flabby at times. Nevertheless, taming unrestrained production, opting for mountain vineyards, carefully vinifying, and keeping its wines on their lees for short spells are the key elements behind the transformation of this ostensibly ugly duckling into Prince Charming! Thus, contemporary, premium Roditis wines possess clear, lemony or—depending on the region—mineral aromas, light to medium body, and refreshing acidity, all elements that dress the wines with a “European” patina and great flexibility at the table.

Rouvalis Winery

We have great respect for the land we cultivate on.
Thus we create, attending to the needs of this special place and combining tradition with modern practices.

The vineyard cultivation, the art of vinification and the way of consuming wine existed from ages ago. We are using ancient knowledge and experience acquired through the years. Combining them with modern science, oenology and viticulture we produce distinctive wines with character.

This is our goal, to produce wines of the highest quality that express the unique characteristics of the Aigialeian terroir that also match the modern tastes.

Quality has become a habit for us and someone meets it in every step of our work. It is there, from the work in the vineyards to the wine making process, in the gravity winery. It is present in our education. Quality is the foundation of everything we do and we do it with vivid enthusiasm.
