The Malagouzia grapes come from a single vineyard site, known as "Turtles" because it is a nesting site for the local turtle population. The vineyard covers 36.35 hectares in the Amyndeon plateau. The vines are grown at an altitude of 620 to 710 meters above sea level. Planted at a density of 5,900 vines per hectare, they yield 65 hectolitres per hectare, following green harvest and selection. The soil is sandy to sandy-clay over limestone which offers the vines excellent drainage. When the grapes have reached optimal maturity, they are hand-harvested in 15-kilogram baskets, to preserve the quality of the fruit.

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.
