The Winery

Over the years local winegrowers would gather every year for the pressing of the grapes, and especially at the kazani where the fiery local spirit tsipouro would be made from the pomace left over from the wine production process. The great local appreciation for our wine by other producers in the area, people who know a thing or two about what makes a good wine, led us to producing and bottling the produce of our land to share with the world.

Fortunately, our home-made small batch production operation means we get to control our product at every step of the winemaking journey. This is a year-round process, with different work needing to be done throughout every season to ensure that come time for harvesting the grapes are at the perfect size and sugar-level for the wine we want to create.

The Process

Our process is all about creating the best product possible. We let our grapes breathe the fresh sea breeze flowing in from the Aegean and to draw up as much nutrients as they need from our rich soil.

After picking and crushing the grapes we are left with the must which is either separated immediately for our whites or left to stay a little longer with the grape skin in the case of our red wines. This is then fermented, with great care taken through each batch to make sure the process is halted at just the right moment to deliver the flavours, aromas and alcohol levels we want.

After clarification of unwanted pomace we fill our wines into oak barrels to be stored at our own barrel house. Since 2012 this has been done in a systematic way to ensure that each year’s production gets at least a year of barrel-aging which strengthens the flavour and adds a ripple of smooth tannins.

After 12 months at our own storehouse we then bottle and label everything on site. We are very grateful that our process allows us to take as much time as we need to create the product we want so that we know when we put our name on the bottle we’re proud of what’s inside.
