Biblia Chora is the innovative creation of Vangelis Gerovassiliou and Vassilis
Tsaktsarlis, two of the most talented winemakers in Greece. The winery was
established in 1998 and the privately owned vineyard lies on the cool climate slopes
of Mount Pangeon, at Kokkinochori near Kavala. It has been farmed organically
since day one. These exceptional, cutting edge wines are some of the best white
wines in Greece, which have similarities to very good white Bordeaux – not surprising
as Vassilis studied with Denis Dubourdieu; the king of modern white Graves.
Located in the coastal region of Pangaia, Biblia Chora’s privately owned estate
vineyard is situated at 380 metres altitude and extends over 140 hectares. With the
striking Paggaio Mountain as the backdrop and the sea breeze coming from the
Aegean Sea in front the estate, the vines thrive in this mild, Mediterranean climate
which is characterised by mild winters and cool summers. The wide diurnal
temperature range, encourages a long, slow maturation of the grapes,
concentrating the flavours in the berries. The vineyard is cultivated according to strict
ecological agricultural standards in order to respect the environment and local flora
and fauna. The vines are planted at a density of 4,000 plants per hectare and all the
work in the vineyard, such as leaf thinning and the harvest, is carried out by hand.
The soil is rocky and infertile, with limestone and clay and good levels of drainage.
The grapes were carefully selected at optimum maturity levels. Each variety was
fermented in stainless steel tanks, to preserve the freshness and the aromatic varietal
characteristics, prior to blending. This wine was vinified without fining or filtration.
