Costas has spent most of his life immersed in a world of wine appreciation.   Born in Cyprus, he absorbed the wisdom of the Mediterranean culture, where wine is considered a healthful gift from nature.  Costas was born with a fascination for how wine is made and develops and how it brings people together.

Today, he keeps the same attitude: "Learning about wine” is an ongoing process.

Wine Tasting morning of March 3, 2010

Colli di Lapio

Romano Clelia

DOC 2008

Fiano di Avelino

High altitude vineyards

Appple, pear, lemon, herbs

Clean, citrus, fresh acidity. Great balance superb wine.

Long mineral finish.

At $24.00 it might seem like a big investment for a Fiano but it disserves every single penny as well as every one of the Tre Bicchieri that was awarded.
