Winery

The organically cultivated vineyard is located on the eastern slopes of Mount Cholomon, facing Mount Athos and the Syggitikos Gulf. The vines are grown at an elevation of 200 to 500 meters, just a short distance from the Aegean Sea. The vines are strongly influenced by ocean breezes and cool, humid winds from the surrounding mountains at night. This temperate climate allows for natural, bright acidity and contributes to the seasonal hydration of the vines, allowing the precious natural resources to be used more sparingly. In addition to moderate watering, the shallow, sandy loam soil and the slate subsoil ensure low yields and concentrated juice, while the soil's high copper content and limestone provide a foundation for satisfying minerality. The vines are cane pruned, single and double Guyot trained and the grapes reach excellent maturity with balanced acidity and good phenolic density. The grapes are 100% hand-harvested.
