Why do we love it?

Vidiano Indigenous Yeast 2018 Karavitakis Winery is probably the most exuberant and impressive expression of the variety we have ever tried! With our eyes closed, we are sure that you would also bet that this is a more aromatic and fruitier Santorini, but no, this is Vidiano as it should be.

Nikos Karavitakis, having experimented with Vidiano as few people do, decided to create a new label, Vidiano Indigenous Yeast 2018, a wine that emerged after many experiments, passion and patience. The vineyard is located at an altitude of 640 meters and this means that there the variety gives its most mineral and lemony version. The wine was fermented with ambient yeasts, in stainless steel tanks, where it remained for about 36 months, along with its fine wine lees. After bottling, it matured for a few months in the bottle and the result is simply amazing.

The bottles of Vidiano Indigenous Yeast 2018 Karavitakis Winery are less than 1000 so you know what to do.

* The engraving on the label is inspired by a photo of Nikos with his grandfather in the vines.

Baking sheets

In a blender, mash all the marinade ingredients.

Season the lamb well on all sides and spread the marinade on the inside.

Spread 2-3 sheets on your counter, which will fit the lamb, spread the vine leaves and place the lamb above them.

Fill the peppers with the cheese, place them in the middle and wrap in a roll, lifting the oil sheet with the vine leaves.

Close well, place the roll in a baking pan and bake in a preheated oven at 180o C for 4 hours.

Serve the roll hot or at room temperature.

Extra tips

-If we do not like dill, we skip it
