Robola, wine and grape variety for which the Ionian island of Cephalonia in greece is most famous. The distinctively powerful, lemony dry white is made entirely from Robola grapes, which are cultivated almost exclusively on the island. The wine made from these early-ripening grapes is high in both acidity and extract and is much prized within Greece. dna profiling established that Robola is quite distinct from rebula (ribolla Gialla). The few hundred hectares are mainly limited to the Ionian islands of greece.
