white dry wine
After 15 years of offering only one dry red wine, Meden Agan, the Papantonis family produced an elegant dry white wine called Metron Ariston in 2005. It is made from the indigenous variety "Roditis" (65%) and from Chardonnay (35%). The grapes are derived from the Malandreni vineyards in the province of Argolis. It is a Regional Wine of the Peloponnese.
The name of the wine Metron Ariston, meaning ‘moderation is best’ implies the avoidance of extremes in the lives of human beings. It expresses the pursuit of the Golden Mean and Harmony in the majority of human activities.
The saying ‘metron ariston’ is attributed to Cleobulus of Rhodes, one of the seven sages of Greece. It has the same meaning as the other maxim ‘meden agan’ (‘nothing in excess’) carved on the entrance of the temple of Apollo in Delphi.
