“Let the vine express the terroir to get wines with typicity and complexity”

unique
& rare

In the vineyards, grapes benefit from an ideal habitat. In our region, the grapevine is not a common cultivar, thus our wines are the only representatives of an unparalleled terroir.

Each vintage has its own unique character, an excellent degree of quality and a high level of typicity. This is our inspiration!!!

geology

Ambracian gulf took its shape 10.000 years ago when water from Ionian Sea invaded into the basin, which in turn, has been created 2 million years before, due to an intense tectonic activity. Long before the sea invasion, the tectonic sinking has been filled by the accumulations from Epirus mountains, brought by the rivers Arachthos and Louros.

There, the vines stretch their roots to endow wines with the flavors of iodine and ink, with a slight tanginess and a mineral class.

soil texture

The vines struggle to spread their roots into a calcareous clay soil. Clay soils tend to retain water molecules and thus stay cooler.

This type of soil is famous for producing some of the boldest red wines in the world. During the dry summer, the vines find the much-needed water trapped deep into the soil.

The calcareous clay is said to be even cooler, helping the grapes to retain good levels of acidity.

climate

During the growing season, vines have the privilege to enjoy long periods of sunshine, and a constant gently North-westerly wind, called “maistros”, that blows into from the Ambracian gulf.

Late in the evening and during the night, higher levels of relative humidity revitalize and cool the vines, promoting a balanced maturation process and the production of superior wines. Early in the morning, the sun burns away this moisture and gives light and warmth.

Winter months are characterized by the high precipitation levels, that fill the soil deposits with water. During the dry summer months, the roots intake the most needed moisture from these reservoirs.

biodiversity

The vines grow among Kiwi, tangerine trees and wild forest. The vineyard’s soil is not tiled, while the grass is mechanically maintained.

Walking in the vineyard you can feel the aromas of wild herbs that grow among the vines.

These aromas and flavors can be easily recognized in a glass of our wine.
