Our Terroir
The region around Kenourgio benefits from a microclimate ideal for viticulture. The geoclimatic conditions result in premium quality wine grapes.
We cultivate indigenous grape varieties like Malagousia, Assyrtiko and Mavrodaphne and cosmopolitan ones like Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah.
Our wines reflect both the unique terroir of this part of Greece as well as the work of the dedicated team that creates them. Our aim is to develop a small family of eclectic and exclusive wines and to this end we use traditional production methods and focus on small yields for maximum quality grapes. Disciplined, passionate and true to tradition, we support the uniqueness of our Aetolian land, a land that keeps offering its best for many a century.
