Our vineyards in Monopigado village are located on the slopes of a hilly area of about 1000 – 1600 ft altitude, near the Aegean coastline, overlooking the Aegean Sea and the mythical Mount Olympus. The area is blessed with the cooling wind from the mountain area surrounding it from the north and it also enjoys the summer breeze from the sea. The soil is mainly clay and gravel with very high concentration of stones. Its structure, combined with the dry cultivation of the vines, enables the penetration of the roots deep into the sub-soil. The average yield is no more than 3 tons per acre.
