Lipsi Winery - Lipsi
Lipsi Winery is a boutique winery founded by two local winemakers, Manolis Vavoulas and Nikos Grillis. Their vision is to revive the island’s winemaking tradition, mainly the famous sweet red wine made from sun-dried grapes, and to produce new, quality wines from indigenous vines.
The new winery, completed in 2013, is situated on a hillside and overlooks one of the vineyards. It combines the traditional island style with contemporary production facilities.
The winery’s vineyards cover an area of around five hectares. The visitors can sample the wines while enjoying panoramic views of Lipsi and the Aegean. The winery is certified with ISO 22000.
The wines currently produced (three of which come from the local variety fokiano) are: Aposperitis, an award-winning dessert wine from sun-dried grapes, Anemomilos, a unique Blanc de Noirs, Psilante, a fruity, semi-dry rosé, Aloni, a crispy dry white from assyrtiko and athiri varieties.
The winery also grows syrah and mandilaria varieties. Grape varieties used: assyrtiko, athiri, syrah, mandilaria.
The winery is open to visitors during the summer months.
