Just outside Siatista, northern Greece, you'll find vineyards that would be the envy of any of the world's best wine producers - if, that is, they had ever heard of them. This place is virtually unknown now, but it still has vines nearly 100 years old, planted amongst spectacular mountain scenery. In the 19th century, the wines made here from Xinomavro were famous throughout Europe. Dimitris Diamantis believes they could be again, and is painstakingly restoring whatever old vineyards he can get his hands on.

The Diamantis Xinomavro is different from the better-known examples made in Naoussa on the other side of Macedonia. It has softer, more elegant tannins, beautiful red fruit flavours and huge ageing potential.
