Salty cod, the most famous fish in the world, changed the diary of Europe, and became popular since the mid-15th century! Pickled with salt, it is preserved unchanged for months without losing its wonderful taste and nutritional value.
It is a Greek traditional fish-dish for the 25th of March, a national holiday, when we celebrate the liberation of Greece from the Ottoman Empire in 1821.

Andriana’s wine proposal
DRY WHITE WINE FROM ROBOLA VARIETY
“Robolla Cellar Selection” , a dry white wine from Robola variety. Robola is a Greek indigenous variety which used to be cultivated in the area of Ionian Islands centuries ago. The homeland of Robola all likelihood is Kefallinia island.
The Centillini΄s Winery Robola, made from ripe Robola grapes grown in the oldest vineyard, seems like a unique expression for the variety, full of sweet citrus and orange aromas with a touch of white pepper and limestone-soil mineral taste.
Add a crispy acidity and it matches perfectly with the salty and light greasiness of the fried cod.
The ideal Greek wine and food pairing.
