The Begleri variety derives its name from the Syrian variety Begler. This variety is endemic to the island, since Ikaria is the only place where Begleri is being cultivated during the last century. Begleri is cultivated on leveled surfaces all over the island, and its yield rate reaches 500 kilos/1.000m². It is a variety with an intense aromatic and complex character (citrus aromas, with a kiwi aroma prominence, but also tropical fruits aromas), as well as characteristic acidity. It favors light meals, seafood, yellow cheese, and fruits. It is served cool.
