DOMAINE GLINAVOS is part of the living tradition of Zitsa, one of the widely known wine production areas in Greece, with some of the most interesting indigenous varieties. Zitsa is also a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO). Even Lord Byron, when he visited Zitsa in 1809, praised its wine as “a superb white wine of which Abbot Gregorios was very proud of”.
With ongoing efforts for the continuous improvement of its wine quality, Glinavos’ winery is one of the leaders in the field of wine-making. Lefteris Glinavos set up the winery with effort and passion in 1978. Today, his son Thomas, who follows in his father’s footsteps, is the CEO of the winery.
The variety of our wines include White and Red wines, Sparkling Rosé and White Wines and a special kind of “Orange” wine which is made based on the traditional method of wine making, specific to the region and has been passed down from generation to generation for 400 years.
DOMAINE GLINAVOS also produces the traditional Greek distillate “Tsipouro” in three varieties: classic, quince infused and aged.Read more_
We believe that each wine should tell a story. The story of its variety, its production, its maturing, the story of the rains, the burning sun and the land it grows on. For this reason, we chose to walk the less frequented path, the one of keeping the tradition and of harmonic collaboration with modern technology. From collecting grapes by hand until the discreet but essential use of modern technology, we combine the best elements of both worlds.
