Tsapournakos 2016 - Domaine Vogiatzis

Just a great weakness!

The forgotten local variety of the area of ​​Velventos of Kozani, Tsapournakos, was discovered by Yiannis Vogiatzis, a doctor of Oenology, who decided to experiment with it. The results of his experiments surprised everyone! Velvety, stylish and robust, this wine from the unknown variety immediately won our hearts!

The story showed that the frog was an ultimately king as Tsapournakos proved to be a clone of the fine Cabernet franc variety that allegedly arrived in the area through French soldiers who passed from around the 18th to the 19th century. Did the name Tsapournakos eventually come from the French Cabernet?

After 12 months maturation in the barrel, it was bottled, “wearing” one of our favorite labels in Greek wine. Tsapournakos of Voyiatzis Estate is our great predilection and we strongly recommend it!
