OuSyra, Syros, Aegean Islands
OuSyra was founded by Edward and his wife Eileen, in Chroussa, a small village on the south of Syros. They started with just two wines, a white from local Serifiotiko and rosé from Fokiano, using native Naxos grapes. The 2018 vintage was vinified for the first time in their privately owned winery and has received great reviews ever since. Both wines are distinguished by their aromatic, fruity character and freshness, both in the nose and pallet. The winery is still family-run on Syros, creating terroir-driven wines from rare indigenous Cycladic varieties.
