This is another family business with a long experience and history in wine making. The vineyards belong ultimately mainly to the Sinai Monastery of the Holy Apostles. Located in the foothills of Asterousia Mountains, it is the southernmost winery of Europe.

The vineyard is ideally located with a slight south-eastern orientation that takes maximum advantage of the area’s micro-climate. They cultivate according to the traditional technique of «Guyot» and they harvest by hand. 

Vineyards in the area are not given over only to the vines: they are surrounded by olive trees and orange and fruit trees, peanut bushes. and the wild vegetation. Thus, they are part of a balanced ecosystem. 10 grape varieties are cultivated: Moshato Spinas, Vilana, Vidiano, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc (white), Kotsifali, Madilari, Cabernet, Syrah, Merlot (red).

The winery is open to visitors and allows them to participate in all stages of the process – from plant to bottle!
