- Producing an aromatic white wine that belies its outward color, Moschofilero is an indigenous grape variety with a pronounced reddish-grey skin that has been cultivated in Greece since, well, the Greeks. This Peloponnese vin gris has a dollop of Messinian Roditis blended in (also rose-skinned), making Nikifourou's offering positively lip-smacking and thirst-quenchingly crisp.
