Vision

At Domaine Gerovassiliou the vineyard is cultivated with great care and enthusiasm that leads V. Gerovassiliou to constantly research and experiment with Greek and foreign varieties, both well and less known ones. New technological advances blend well with tradition throughout vine growing and vinification processes.The aim is to produce high quality wines from grapes cultivated exclusively in the privately-owned vineyard; wines that carry all distinct characteristics of the specific microclimate (terroir) of Epanomi.

Vangelis Gerovassiliou

portrait van

Vangelis Gerovassiliou was born in Epanomi. He descends from an agricultural family. After completing his studies, in the School of Agriculture at theAristotle University of Thessaloniki, he specialized in Oenology, Viticulture, Wine Degustation and Technology of Oenological Equipment at the University of Bordeaux. During his studies, he worked together with the eminent Bordeaux University Professor, Emile Peynaud.

From 1976 to the beginning of 1999 he worked as an oenologist at Domaine Porto Carras, where some of the most renowned wines of Greece were produced. It was there that he first vinified, revived and rescued from oblivion the long forgotten Greek varietal of Malagousia.

In 1981, urged by his love, knowledge and experience in vine-growing and good wine, Vangelis Gerovassiliou began to renovate the family vineyard and created the Domaine Gerovassiliou.

Vineyard

gero vineDomaine Gerovassiliou is a single private vineyard stretching over 56 hectares. The climate in the region of Epanomi is Mediterranean with mild winters and temperate summers, cooled by sea breezes. The vineyard is surrounded by sea on its three sides at a distance of three kilometers, while its west side faces Thermaikos Gulf and Mount Olympus, extending over the beaches of Pieria. The soil is mainly sandy with a few clayey substrates and calcareous rocks. It is rich in sea fossils, since the surrounding hilly area was formed by sea deposits.
