Description

The vine-growers of the Robola zone sought to secure their livelihood while protecting and highlighting the dynamics of the Kefalonian vineyard. Thus armed with passion, experience and knowledge, they founded the Robola Producers’ Cooperative in 1982.
In 1987 the Cooperative, located in the center of the Robola zone under the slopes of Mount Ainos and next to the Holy Monastery of St. Gerasimos, acquired its own winery equipped with modern winemaking resources.
The most famous grape variety of the island and one of the most noble white Greek varieties is Robola, which is cultivated exclusively in the Robola Zone, located in the most mountainous area of Kefalonia and extending around the valley of Omala.
Apart from Robola there are other indigenous varieties in the area, such as Tsaousi, Vostilidi, Moschato and Mavrodafni in a total area of about 120 Ha, with most of them being self-rooted.
The cooperative produces elegant white dry wines, the most notable being the PDO Robola of Kefalonia, a wine full of citrus aromas, crisp acidity, depth and intensity, while aiming at the production of highest possible quality wines from all the grape varieties of the Kefalonian vineyard.

TOUR DESCRIPTION AND TASTING
The tour includes a visit to the winery facilities so that the visitor can understand the wine production process, from the reception of the grapes to the bottling and aging of wine. A wine tasting follows, and finally visitors have the opportunity to make their purchases from the winery store.
