White naturally sweet wine, Protected Designation of Origin Kefalonia from sun-dried Muscat grapes; Product of organic viticulture; Vintage 2005.
Historical data indicate that it was produced exclusively in the clay soil of Katogi since the Venetians, who considered it necessary to escort their meals. It was named after the stalactites adorning the caves of Kefalonia - places of worship of the Pan and the Nymphs - as each drop is as valuable, rare and crystal as the drops of a stalactite.
We lay and dry in the sun the grapes of Cephalonian Muscat for about 10 to 15 days; after that, destemmed, pressing, alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature, filtering and bottling.
