"According to the oldest of Greek myth, life began with the goddess Eurynome. Having nowhere to rest, she split sky from sea, then danced gracefully on the waves, birthing the elemental entirety of the earth; uniting wisdom and divinity. Her namesake wine is the result of equally comprehensive winemaking."
"Eurynome red is a blend of Xinomavro (literally "acid-black") and Negoska, two extraordinary indigenous Greek grapes that produced a full-bodied and aromatically complex wine, after aging in oak barrels for 12 months. Eurynome white is a 100% Roditis (literally "rose"), light and delicate in the mouth, with aromas of basil, ginger, and fruity cues of apple and banana sweetness. Eurynome is made with organic grapes.
The label shows Eurynome dancing on the chaotic waves in the process of creating the world. A very abstract graphic that generates an aura of mystery, for one of the most interesting stories of ancient Greek mythology about the creation of the world. The graphics are screen printed directly on the glass."
