This dry, aromatic wine is the superior “Oenou Yi – Ktima Vassiliades” white wine. It acquired its name from the “Pente Litharia” vinicultural area in Omodos, where it flourishes.
“Pente Litharia” is a wine with golden-green shades and elegant aromas of exotic fruit and citrus, along with white flower notes. It maintains a delicate balance between its dynamic body and its velvety texture, while having a long lasting intense aftertaste.
Served at 9˚C, it combines perfectly fresh seafood meze.
Vlassides Winery produces this wine with selected grapes of the indigenous variety Xynisteri, blended with Sauvignon Blanc (25%).
The special selection of the grapes as well as the careful winemaking are the essential conditions that lead to the production of this exceptional wine. It is a fruity wine with lively acidity and aromas of green apple, citrus and pineapple. "Grifos 2-Lefkos" reaches the market just after bottling so that it can be enjoyed young.
It should be stored in a horizontal position at 15°C and served chilled at 8-10°C. The wine pairs well with light salads and seafood. Due to its smooth texture it can also be consumed alone or as an aperitif.

Opus Artis is the premium red wine of Vlassides Winery; a true work of art.
The wine is produced only when the grape crop is exceptional, from the varieties grown exclusively in the estate’s own vineyards.
Its varietal composition differs slightly every year, in order to bring out the best qualities of the wine.
Merlot gives it a rich, velvety character, whereas Cabernet Sauvignon helps it to evolve during a ten-year period and Shiraz revives it, giving it a breath of “freshness”.
The wine matures in new French barrels for eighteen months, followed by two years in the bottle.
The wine is unfiltered and is recommended to be decanted and served at 18°C.
