Greek fine wine T-OINOS secures UK distributor
Berkmann Wine Cellars is ready to bring Greek fine wines over to the UK following a new exclusive partnership with T-OINOS.
The Greek wine producer started out as a project inspired by estate owner Alexandre Avatangelos and Gerard Margeon, the head sommelier of the Alain Ducasse Group, and T-OINOS wines are the first in 3000 years to be produced from the volcanic soil of Tinos, a World Heritage-listed island of the Cyclades. The company has a reputation for producing some of the top white wines in the world, according to Berkmann.
The winegrower, Stephane Derenoncourt, is a world-renowned consultant who has worked with clients in Bordeaux and around the world, including Domaine de Chevalier, Clos Fourtet, Clos de l’Oratoire and Smith Haut-Lafitte.
Oenologist and associate winemaker, Thanos Georgilas, was part of the viticulture and oenology research team at Opus One in California and the production and viticulture team at Chateau Latour, Pauillac in Bordeaux.
Berkmann’s director of fine wine and private clients, Guillem Kerambrun, said: “As a sommelier, I had the opportunity to taste and present the wonderful wines of T-OINOS in many restaurants around the world since its first vintage. It is a pleasure for me to welcome T-OINOS to the Berkmann Wine Cellars portfolio.
"T-OINOS highlights the great potential of the most beautiful crus of the Greek vineyard, the expression of the terroir of Clos Stegasta is worthy of the most beautiful and rare wines in the world. A real hidden gem.”
