Earth and Sky is Thymiopoulos' original, and still his top, Xinomavro. Made only from the oldest vines in some of the best sites in Naoussa, it is polished, refined and impeccably balanced. When people spend a lot more money on the best wines of Barolo and Barbaresco - this is what they're looking for. A marvel of modern Greek winemaking.

Thymiopoulos could claim to have transformed our perceptions of Naoussa in western Macedonia, the most important Greek wine appellation. Instead of being dense and a bit rough in youth, Thymiopoulos's reds are haunting, fresh and ageworthy. Parallels with Barolo are not far fetched. Earth and Sky ... known as Ghi Kai Ouranos in Greece, is their top bottling, from the family's oldest vinesJancis Robinson MW, 02/02/2019
