The Single Block Barba Yannis is named in honour of Mr Yannis, from whom the single block of 3.71 hectares was purchased, in 1994. The estate vineyard is located in P.D.O. Amyndeon, in the region of Macedonia, and is situated at an altitude of 620 to 710 meters above sea level. The vines are 100% ungrafted, pre-phylloxera Gobelet (bush) vines, which are over 90 years old. The summers are hot, so to avoid extreme water deficit, a 'root zone drying irrigation' is used, to ensure the optimum conditions for the nourishment and maturation of the grapes. The vines are grown in sandy clay over limestone soils, which provide excellent drainage.

Alpha Estate is located in Amyndeo, North West Greece. It is the brainchild of two visionaries, second-generation vine grower Makis Mavridis, and Bordeaux-trained wine maker Angelos Iatrides. Angelos is one of the most talented winemakers working in Europe. This pristine estate in the cool highlands of Western Macedonia comprises 120 hectares of privately owned single-block vineyards, which are certified sustainable, and employ the most up-to-date vineyard techniques and winemaking technology to produce world-class wines from French and indigenous Greek varietals.
