Ousyra means happiness and the loving couple who left cold Scotland behind, continue to live in the sunny Syros. Edward is dedicated to the emergence of the terroir of Syros and the Cycladic varieties. So he made a spectacular rose wine from the almost extinct Fokiano variety. Eligible vineyards were found in Naxos. Naxian Fokiano travels to Syros and from there the experienced team of oenologists led by Spyros Zoumboulis (Idylle d 'Achinos, Bodegas Krontiras, ring any bells?) works their magic.
