    VINIFICATION

    The grapes remain in the fridge at 46˚F for 48 hours. The grapes are destemmed and cold extracted for 12 hours. Following a short maceration on the skins, the free run must is transferred to a tank, where the malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is bottled without being filtered.

    Achaia

    Slopes of Aigialia

    The vineyards, are particular in form and position. It is a charming place to go sightseeing as it consists one of the most plentiful vineyards in Greece.The cultivation of these grapevines is ideal due to the northern and northeastern exposure of the slopes as they are not overexposed to the sun during the summer months, however at the same time they bask in the cool breeze of the Corinthian Gulf.The exceptional climatic conditions as well as the various fertile types of land that have been formed from old geological alluvial soil and the existence of good drainage everywhere due to the incline and the lowest yield from the rest of Achaia, contribute to the production of top quality wines.
