Description to P.D.O. Zitsa (O.P.A.P.) / Ζίτσα

Appellation in the district of Ioannina in the north-west of the Epirus region (Greece) on the border with Albania, named after the municipality of the same name. The vineyards cover around 400 hectares of poor, calcareous soils at an altitude of 600 to 700 metres above sea level, most of which are fenced off to protect them from wild boars. The Kalamas River flows through the area. The dry POP white wine (dry) and the white sparkling wine (dry, semi-dry, "lieblich") are made from the autochthonous Debina variety (also called Zitsa here). The rosé-coloured sparkling wine is declared and marketed as POP Amynteo. Well-known producers are Glinavos (Monastiri Zitsa) and Zoinos.
