Akakies Sparkling 2012
When Akakies Sparkling 2010 was launched in the market in summer 2012, we were sure that we had made a very good dry sparkling rosé from Xinomavro. What we didn’t know was whether we had achieved our target: to create a stylish wine that would appeal to young people, suitable for a celebration or a toast, but also a relaxed evening with friends after work. This was a type of Greek sparkling wine that didn’t exist before. A few months later, after the 2010 vintage had already been sold out, I knew that we had achieved our target. Now, the first Kir-Yianni sparkling rosé has its own devoted fan club and we are preparing for our next step.
