Robola Wine
« on: September 12, 2006, 08:01:56 am »
Had our first bottle of Robola wine that we had brought back from Kef on Friday.  It was the Organic one and I must say it was very enjoyable.  Woke up with a bit of a stinker of a headache though but that may have been caused by the 3 Ouzo and sprites I had aswell!!!

Think I may have a try of the St Gerasimos bottle which I enjoyed several occasions when I was on holiday which will leave me with just the normal Robola wine to drink ; o (

Anyone know of any importers of the Robola Co-Operative winery wine and any Ouzo #12 importers so I could replenish my stock when I run out?

By the way has anyone been on the tour of the Co-Operative winery, has that english tour guide got the best job in the world or what?

Allan,

Try their website. I remember reading on the noticeboard that they do supply several importeres in the UK. IIRC, most of them were in North London (no surprise) and there was also a company near Bluewater.

Bottle of St Gerasimos was very enjoyable last night and even better I've not woken up with a hangover!!  Something to do with the low sugar/mineral content of the wine.

Bliss!!

They don't sell Ouzo in Tesco's or Sainsbury's by us and we try not to go to our local Asda as it's scallytastic!!

Deb, the link that Allan gave further up in the topic, they sell Mythos on that. I think it's around 25 a case though! ;D

Thanks John..
I was hoping some supermarket somewhere stocked it-they seem to sell beers from every where else.Are they being 'Greekist'?
