About This Item

Even though summer got off to a rough start here in Chicago we knew it was sure to come around, and we have selected the perfect wine for that next sunny day you want to enjoy out by the pool or at a picnic in the park.

 

Hoof & Lur is a Moschofilero from Troupis Winery which pays homage to the traditional style of wine native to the high plateau of Mantinia in the central Peloponnese. The Troupis family has been involved in agriculture since the 1970’s, selling vines, fruit baring trees, and flowers from their nursery in Mantinia. Tasos Troupis, together with his children, created a modern, family run operation that produces and bottles wines exclusively from their 16 acers of estate vineyards.

 

This alternative version of Moschofilero is reminiscent of the style made for generations before. Spontaneous native yeast fermentation, extended skin contact, minimal sulphur, unfiltered and unfined. The intention behind this bottling is an inspiration from the past aiming for the purest expression of Moschofilero as possible, with minimal human intervention. The resulting wine was rejected from the Mantinia appellation as “untypical”, and therefore does not bear the appellation name on the label. There are endless examples of squeaky-clean wines made to the Mantinia blueprint that can come across as uninteresting or predictable – this wine is anything but that. It reminds us that you can do things differently, you can challenge antiquated norms, and you can create your own path.
