Robola Grape

Although Robola Grape is grown throughout Greece, it is indigenous to Cephalonia in the Ionian Islands , a region also known as Corfou. It is the star grape of the Cephalonia Appellation. This is a high altitude white grape, which produces powerful wines that has distinct citrus/lemony and mineral notes. Typical yields for Robola are between 3,500 and 6,000 kg/ha . The Robola grape is early ripening with high acidity levels and can sustain wet winters and hot, dry summers without any problems. It can be made into a single variety wine or used in a blend.
