Product Description
Dry white wine Protected Designation of Origin - Cephalonia. Alcohol Content: 13% vol. This impressive white wine is made solely from the grape variety known as "Robola". Only 30,000 bottles of wine are produced every year, due to the low yield per acre of the vines located on mountainous areas. It is characterized by its yellowish-green colour, fresh acidity, sharp flavours and seducing aromas resembling citrus, grapefruit and lemon blossoms. It is best served chilled. Enjoy it with seafood, fish and white meat with lemon sauces.

Gentilini

Gentilini, was the maiden name of Spiros Kosmetatos' grandmother, last descendant of a family with a long life history on the island. Spiros Kosmetatos happened to spend two years near South African vineyards and Institute of Wine in Stellenbosch. This is where he got the idea and decided to face the challenge of creating, in the Greek area, a wine that would compete in quality with the best wines in the world. Having this challenge in mind, Spiros Kosmetatos returned to his homeland, the island of Cephalonia. After some very careful experimentation on the process of wine making, he launched his harvest products into the market, for the first time in 1984. In 2002, Marianna Kosmetatos, daughter of Spiros, and her spouse, Petros Markantonatos, took charge of GENTILINI coming up with new ideas and a strong creative spirit. GENTILINI keeps experimenting towards the best possible output, respecting local varieties, especially Robola, and focusing on the promotion of their local, special character. This is not without a reason, since its biggest concern is for the highest quality, culinary culture and consumer's pleasure.

Cephalonia

Cephalonia is the largest of the Eptanisa islands and it is popular for its natural beauty and rare geological phenomena. Many characteristics of the area make it look like an exotic destination. Worth visiting are: the wonderful sandy beach of Myrtos with the greenish-blue waters, the Melissani cave-lake, the Drogarati cave and the beautiful forest of Ainos with the black firs and wild horses. Don't forget to visit the picturesque settlement of Fiscardo, the natural port of Assos, the famous Katavothres, to admire the vines on the terraces, the mansions with the Venetian crests, the unique Xi beach with the red sand and the picturesque fishing villages. The history of the island began millions of years ago and the archaeological findings prove that it was part of the wider Mycenaean civilization. After that, the island was under Roman occupation, then the Byzantine Empire, Venetian Rule, the French and the British, until 1864 when it was finally united with the rest of Greece.
