About him: first adventure across the border for the legendary Zulu Wine team! Thus was born the collaboration with Jason Ligas, a young winemaker who after making his bones in that of Montpellier by Jacques Selosse (WOW!) returns to his homeland (Northern Greece, on the border with Macedonia) where he decides to focus everything on the vineyard. "More then organic" cites some back labels and this is the philosophy followed by Jason, or permaculture, which has the ambition to create sustainable and long-lasting production systems in the name of the principles exalted by the great philosopher-farmer Masanobu Fukuoka. This speech transferred to the Jason vineyards means: leaving plants the freedom to do what they want, tall grass, competition between vines and other aromatic plants. A miniature, unspoiled, wild and pure forest. Permaculture and its gentle and delicate making translates into the glass in deep and sincere freshness, available in every glass!
Thus was born this collector's jewel, elegant and gourmet...a unforgettable wine!
