The decision was mainly based on the advice of Kostas Bakasietas, experienced vine nursery owner, and of the French soil scientist, Claude Bourguignon.
The vineyard conducts organic farming since 1996 with official certification, and it is also certified by Bio Hellas. Since 2008, the winery experiments with biodynamic practices from the calendar of Maria Thun. The horses, ducks, turkeys and other animals that roam the vineyards, after the harvest, assist towards developing an integrated ecosystem.
The dominant variety is Xinomavro, while Merlot, Negoska and the white varieties Malagouzia, Assyrtiko and Roditis are also cultivated. The total area does not exceed 5 ha, therefore, due the small size, manual work is reinforced, while the use of tractors and other machinery is minimized.
All this happens within the context of organic cultivation.
The winery has been open to visitors since 1998. The family’s efforts concentrate on reducing intervention during vinification to the lowest level possible in order to bring out the unique characteristics of the terroir.
