Set on 27 acres surrounded by ancient, untouched oak forests, overlooking the Aegean Sea in central Greece, La Tour Melas is making unforgettable, award-winning wines in a very special way. La Tour Melas uses biodynamic and organic methods treating the vineyard as a single organism. This balances the interrelationship of soil, plants and animals as a self-nourishing system with minimal external and artificial input. Flocks of geese and sheep graze the vineyard in winter to keep weeds under control, and bees begin pollinating the surrounding flowers in spring. In harmony with the astronomical planting calendar, artisan wine growers choose the precise phase of the moon for cultivating, pruning, harvesting, and even filling bottles and racking barrels.Learn More

First dark red fruits and raspberries are the intense notes with a delicate touch of flower. Then aromas of spices and liquorice, with notes of toasted oak fill in the palate. A soft and balanced mouth-feel, which then reveals its power with firm tannins.
Steaks with roasted potatoes, pork tenderloin with grilled vegetables and fresh herb bread.
Agiorgitiko 33%, Syrah 33%, Grenache Noir 33%
Fresh and vivid nose, with aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and passion fruit. A medium bodied and fine wine, with an elegant aftertaste of white peach and citrus fruit, this is one of Europe’s top Rosés.
Ideal with lobster pasta, goat cheese topped salmon and margherita pizza but this wine can handle grilled meats and more.
