CHÂTEAU NICO LAZARIDI WHITE
DRY WHITE WINE
The most famous brand name of the NICO LAZARIDI Winery is related to the company’s history, as well as to the oenological revival of the Prefecture of Drama in 1987. The vineyard, where the grapes are cultivated, encompasses perimetrically the Château Nico Lazaridi Winery, which is fully adjusted to the natural environment.
A combination of the international varieties Sauvignon Blanc and Ugni Blanc, along with the Greek variety of Muscat of Alexandria confirms the superior quality of the Château Nico Lazaridi white wine.
30 years Château
Completing this year’s three decades since CHÂTEAU NICO LAZARIDI’s first bottling is an opportunity not only for celebration but also for new beginnings: the three brand new Château Nico Lazaridi wines, white, red and rosé, are now released with new labels, crafted by the Greek artist Giorgos Taxidis.
All three works depicted on the new labels together constitute a trilogy of man’s actions on the vine, placed in three separate time frames. On the white wine label we see the harvest and the picking of the fruit – here is the present, the now.
