The vineyard sits on the hillside slopes of PGI Meteora around the Meteora Rocks and the Cave of Theopetra. The climate is continental, with cold winters and sunny, dry summers. Frequent northerly winds from the Pindos Mountain cool the vines and prevent the development of disease. High diurnal temperature ranges during spring and summer impart the grapes with intense aromas, high natural acidity and concentrated flavours. The soils are sandy, clay with a high presence of limestone composed of marine fossils, combined with a slate subsoil, which result in shallow vineyards, providing excellent drainage. This particular composition of soil results in low yields and the resulting wine is characterised by high acidity and minerality. The double cordon trained and spur pruned vines are planted with an east/west row orientation and are cultivated organically. Strict green harvests further help to keep the yields low and the fruit is full of concentrated flavours. Hand-harvested in the early morning.

At the foot of Meteora Rocks and around the prehistoric Cave of Theopetra, signs of human existence and evolution date back to the Paleolithic era, including the discovery of grape seeds which demonstrate the ancient coexistence of Meteora with the vine and wine. In 1996, the Tsililis family created the Theopetra Estate, an iconic winery with organically grown vineyards, with the aim of reviving the vineyard to its former glory and eminence, following the Phylloxera outbreak in the early 20th century. The family combines historical tradition with cutting-edge technology in their desire to revive rare Greek grape varieties while respecting the natural environment. The family passionately cultivates the 15-hectare estate vineyard, which is located on hilly slopes surrounding the Cave of Theopetra, and produces characterful wines which are wonderfully expressive of this ancient terroir.
