All about Eretria, Evia.

Apostolis and Nana Lykos welcome you to their winery in Malakondas on the Greek island  of Evia. Here, our passion for wine is combined with a 40-year culinary tradition, which we inherited from our forefathers and continue to honor, while respecting the natural environment and safeguarding it for future generations.

The story of the Lykos family winery goes way back to the time when father -nowgrandfather- Lykos used grapes from his own and other local vineyards to make traditional white, red and rose wines in a stone winepress to complement the exquisite delicacies served in the family’s tavern.

His son Apostolis, the heart and soul of the family and a true culinary artiste, made a dynamic entrance into the field of quality wine making, establishing
a modern and efficient winery in the backyard of the family’s renowned tavern, realizing his father’s enduring vision of producing brand name bottled wines in family owned facilities. With Evia steadily developing into a vintner’s paradise and new wineries emerging and flourishing throughout the island, the Lykos winery remains faithful to the tradition of uniquely matching fine wines with Greek culinary delights.

The vineyards we work with are located in central and southern Evia, Boeotia, Thebes and other parts of Central Greece, as well as famous Nemea in the Peloponnese. We have selected hillside terrain with good drainage planted with varieties such as Assyrtiko, Savatiano, Roditis, Athiri, Malagousia, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Grenache Rouge, Vradiano and Mavrokoudoura. Vineyards with a southern exposure that maximizes the amount of sunlight, and benefiting from gentle sea breezes provide ideal conditions for quality wine grapes and excellent vintages. Combining fine raw materials, expert wine making know how and cutting edge technology, we consistently produce top notch vintages, taking full advantage of each vineyard’s unique terroir.
