Tasting notes and reviews for savatiano wines.
Savatiano is a white Greek wine grape traditionally used as the base grape for retsina wine.
This grape shows a high drought tolerance. Maybe for that it is one of the most widely grown varieties in Greece, especially in the Attica region (Attika).
Because of the association with retsina wine, Savatiano wasn’t often used to produce wine “on-its-own” so to speak. It was either made into retsina or used to cut a blend and produce loose, unlabelled, table wine.
In recent years things have start to change with a few wineries betting hard on Savatiano. For more information about this, read my article about Mylonas winery!
