Passed down from father to son, this family-owned business has stayed true to tradition, with minimum intervention, to ensure quality grapes and wine. Cultivating Greek and European grape varieties, the winery produces some of the best local vintages you’ll have the chance to enjoy.
You’ll visit a family-owned winery located in a small village in Messinia region, just 35 km (24 mi) outside of Kalamata. The private vineyards occupy an area of around 15 acres and produce 5 varieties: Roditis, Carignan, Tempranillo, Merlot and Chardonnay.
The vineyards were first cultivated in the 1980s and wine production started in the mid-2010s.
- The wine tour and tasting experience is available all-year round, apart from Sundays, public holidays and during grape harvesting.
- The grape-harvesting season varies from year to year, but usually takes place sometime between the end of August and the beginning of October.
