Vineyard

The estate-owned vineyard that today occupies 57 hectares, 380 metres above sea level, surrounds the winery. The Mediterranean climate, characterized by mild winters and temperate summers, affected by the Aegean breeze, in combination with the temperature difference between night and day, allows the grapes to mature slowly, building beautiful aromatic and flavor intensity. The soil is rocky with good drainage which facilitates the application of organic vineyard management, respecting the environment and the whole ecosystem of Pangeon. Today, both Greek varieties such as Assyrtiko, Agiorgitiko, and Vidiano and international varieties as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Gewürztraminer, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir are cultivated.
Additionally, an ’unidentified’ local variety, found in Mt Pangeon is cultivated at the Estate from which Biblinos Red and Biblinos Rose wines are produced. The results of DNA testing on the variety indicated that it is a Greek variety that can not be identified with any other.
 
Also, 36 different grape varieties are cultivated for experimental purposes on a small parcel in front of the winery. It is in the winemakers’ best interests to constantly experiment with different varieties, new to the region, and test their adaptability to the local ecosystem to craft new wines in the future.
