- The Aegean island of Limnos (described by Homer as the island of "fire and metal" for the quality of the iron mongers that lived there) was known for sweet red wines up until phylloxera destroyed the island's vineyards in the 1890's. Aside from a co-op, Limnos' other commercial winery is helmed by Petros Honas, former eonologist at Boutari, who organically farms and vints this dry, artisanal, low-yield, aromatic Muscat. Nostimos!
