Kechri Genesis Red


Kechris is one of the most traditional family run wineries in Greece today. Located in Thessaloniki, the business was founded by Evagelos Kechris in 1911. During the 1930’s the family ran a popular taverna which served retsina and sun-dried grape wines from the barrel. This led to the establishment of a proper modern winery during the 1950’s. Eventually management of the business passed to Stelios Kechris, who still leads the winery today together with his daughters Eleni, Maria and Zoe. Trained at the University of Dijon, Stelios has merged tradition and modernity, crafting wines that are distinctly northern Greek in character.

The Kechris Genesis Red is a modern Greek wine that extends both the structure of Xinomavro and the plush fruit of Merlot. Bright ruby red in color, on the nose there are lush aromas of red plum, strawberry compote, sundried tomato, and French vanilla coffee. The palate is medium bodied with round tannins and savory red-fruit flavors. The finish is rich and mouth filling. We suggest serving this wine with the Greek taverna classic, pastitsio (a baked pasta dish made with ground beef and béchamel sauce).
