Drink Wine and Giggle Gals
rated this wine as 91/100
with the following review:
The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals are not above selecting a wine based on the artistry of its label. In the 1920s Philippe de Rothschild commissioned artists to design labels for his wine. Picasso, Dali and Warhol were among Rothschild's premier cru. Katogi's label is distinctive in its font that blends Greek and English in a way that looks like an inviting hand-painted sign. In Greek Katogi means "lower storey" referring to the house where in the 1950s Evangelos Averoff bottled the first cabernet sauvignon in Greece from French vines. The wine reflects the label--lush, unpretentious and oh so smmmmooooth. If the Drink Wine and Giggle gals were to select a comfort wine, Katogi would be it.
