KTIMA GEROVASSILIOU

 

On the slopes of Epanomi, a meticulously-tended vineyard surrounds the modern winery, where the renowned Ktima Grovassiliou wines are produced.

Ktima Gerovassiliou is a single private vineyard stretching over 74 hectares. The climate in the region of Epanomi is Mediterranean with mild winters and hot summers, tempered by sea breezes. The vineyard is surrounded on three sides by the sea, which is three kilometres distant, while its west side faces Thermaic Gulf and Mount Olympus, and the beaches of Pieria

Greek and foreign varieties have been planted and are cultivated with great care: Malagousia -first vinified by Vangelis Gerovassiliou- and Assyrtiko -originally from the island of Santorini- are the Greek white varieties of the estate, while Limnio -an ancient Greek variety mentioned by Aristophanes in the 5th century BC- Mavroudi and Mavrotragano are the Greek red varieties. Furthermore, French white varieties -Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier- and reds -Syrah and Merlot- are also cultivated. In parallel, Ktima Gerovassiliou is continuously experimenting and studying the cultivation of both Greek and foreign varieties.
