Petroulianos is a relatively rare light-skinned grape variety from Greece. Due to its low acidity, it is usually used as a blending agent in Peloponnese, although one producer in Lakonia,Ioannis Vatistas, makes a varietal wine from the grape. Petroulianos is a tricky vine to cultivate, which perhaps explains its scarcity.
The name Petroulianos comes from the Greek word ‘Petra’, meaning stone, and is most likely a reference to the grape’s pronounced mineral characteristics. The wines tend to have good body and richness, with pleasant lemon notes.
