The organic vineyards at the Amyndeo plateau in the Northwest of Greece include old to very old Xinomavro vines, the younger Assyrtiko, Cabernet Sauvignon and the almost forgotten Limniona.
All wines range from the sparkling Karanika Brut, the red Xinomavro/Limniona Cabernet blends and the white Assyrtiko to the delicious rose wine from Xinomavro.
The Karanika winery is a three-section, gravity-flow building situated between the villages of Amyndeo, Vegora and Levea, on a slope at the shores of Lake Vegoritis.
At Domaine Karanika they work harmonically with nature while producing the finest quality wine. The exclusive design of the building prevents the disastrous effects of pumps and filters. On the top floor under the narrow tile roof, the grapes are collected, selected and destemmed.
Gravity allows grapes to slide to the middle floor where the red wines are fermented in both oak and stainless steel tanks of 40hl. At this level the white grapes and the grapes for blanc de noirs are pressed in a traditional basket press.
Right underneath this floor the ageing cellars and the bottling units are being placed. The rest of this floor is reserved for the production of rose and white wines as well as the famous sparkling wines.
