volidza

Volidza grape.

Volitsa (also spelled Volidza) is the name given to a pair of obscure and ancient varieties planted at high altitudes in the Peloponnese region of Greece. Volitsa has both red and white variants, known as Volitsa Mavri and Volitsa Lefki or Aspri respectively. Lefki and aspri both mean ‘white’ in Greek.

Volitsa Lefki (white Volitsa) is often in Asproudes wines. Asproudes, commonly mistaken as a single variety, is in fact a group of miscellaneous or largely unidentified varieties that are grown, harvested and vinified all together to produce fresh, dry, white wines. Some of the other identified grapes in these Asproudes wines are SantmerianaMigdali and Brena.
