Cosmopolitan and Internationally Known
The first international variety of wine grapes that was cultivated in the Greek vineyards, but also the most famous red variety in general is the Cabernet Sauvignon. Although there are several different speculations regarding its origin, it has been inextricably linked with Bordeaux in France.
It is extremely durable and easily adjusted in various soil types and different climatic conditions, which explains its widespread expansion in almost all wine regions in the world. In Epirus, Cabernet Sauvignon started being cultivated a few decades ago. The unique climate and the soils of the area proved to be favourable for its development and also the production of quality wines.
