Lemnos is an island of Greece in the northern part of the Aegean Sea and it is the eighth biggest.
For ancient Greeks, the island was sacred to Hephaestus, god of metallurgy
Also in the island reigned Thoas son by Dionysus and Ariadne. Aristotel the philosopher refers in his writings the “Lemnian vine”. Lemnos was one of the first places in Greece to host vines, said to be imported from Crete.
The variety of “Moschato” is being cultivated in the region for at least, a century.
The soil is volcanic and poor and the climate is mediterranean with many hours of sunshine daily.
The area of Kaminia of Lemnos with geographic coordinates 25° .19`01“ E and 39° .51`35“ N, was chosen as the for wine types made in order to bring to surface the highest acidity and aroma.
From Lemnos we produce the “Moschato Sparkling” and the semi-sparkling “Moschato Bubbly”, two of the most outstanding wines of our house.
Epanomi is an area S.E. of Thessaloniki in a 30 km distance. The coordinates are 22° .54`05“ and 40° .23`06“ N.
The area is famed for its tradition in wine and tsipouro production. The mild winter and the cool summer of the area, create the ideal ecosystem for vine cultivation. The sligthly sloppy and drained fields of Epanomi are reckoned to be the most suitable for viticulture.
The beneficial effect of sea dew, plays a very important role, preventing the quick ripening of the grapes, conveying at the same time to the fruit, the ultimate taste expression of the variety.
From the region of Epanomi, two dark rich red wines are produced, “Syrah” and “Syrah-Malagouzia”
