Wines from Cremisan

Most of the Cremisan wines are made from autochthonous grapes from the Middle East. Only the Cabernet Sauvignon grape is still grown and expanded as an international grape. Under “autochthonous” one understands vines, on which the human hand has not touched through history and has not aimed to change the vines.
