The name Kalabele comes from the Greek words «kalo ampeli», which literally means “good vineyard”. It is a landmark name of an ancestral field of the Karimalis family which is believed to have the best conditions for a vineyard. It is the elevation, the inclination and the climate of the area that conspire in offering high quality wine. The inclination is actually managed by terraces, called «ohte» in the local tongue.
This is a minimal intervention wine made from the local grape varieties of Begleri and Assyrtiko. Vinification takes place with the aid of indigenous yeasts that reflect the unique terroir of the island and yield wine of balanced flavor and the unique aromas of green apple, blossom and citrus fruit.
