Take a Wonderful Journey

Ktima Biblia Chora is located in the foothills of Mt Pangeon, in Kokkinochori, Kavala, in Northern Greece. It was established by oenologists Vassilis Tsaktsarlis and Vangelis Gerovassiliou, who planted an organic vineyard there in 1998. The estate has since grown to 48 hectares. A state-of-the-art wine-making facility is located in the vineyard and produces all of the estate wines.

Biblia Chora’s philosophy centers on producing premium wines that express the unique character of the Pangeon ecosystem.

To achieve this goal, special care is taken during both cultivation and wine production, while making the most of the owners’ knowledge and experience, and combining tradition with technology.

Pangeon Mountain rises behind the winery, majestic and unchanged by time and centuries of rich history. During the Phoenician era, the vines cultivated in the foothills were known as “Biblia,” from which the wine “Biblinos Oenos” was made. In Alexander the Great’s time, the mountain’s gold reserves became a source of revenue to finance the commander’s campaigns. Later, in the Byzantine period, the area was a holding of the Iviron Monastery at Mount Athos.

The view from the winery draws the visitor’s eye to the Strymonian Gulf in the distance, and further to Mount Athos.

Kokkinochori is one of 43 villages within the Municipality of Pangeon, which is the first municipality one comes across in the Prefecture of Kavala when approaching along the old national road from Thessaloniki to Kavala. Most of the residents in the municipality are farmers cultivating grapes, olives and almonds.
