Fokiano is mainly found in certain islands in the Aegean, while some is grown in mainland Greece. It is linked to Samos but it is more commonly grown in Ikaria, planted on terraces and producing its local wine. There are references in ancient scripts that link these grapes to a renowned wine of the era, Pramnios Oinos.
Fokiano produces both dry and sweet wines with distinct aromas, long aftertaste and intense ruby color. These wines feature a marked fruity character, exceptional acidity and significant aging potential. Its evolution in time makes it a connoisseur’s joy to match with food, progressing from rich fish dishes and stuffed vegetables in its youth, to poultry, game and boiled goat or rich desserts.
