On Mykonos, the island of the winds, Nikos Asimomitis and Nikos Lazaridis celebrate the beauty and uniqueness of a blessed land by starting a new winemaking venture. Bringing together their passion and experience in viticulture with the colours and fragrances of its characteristic Cycladic nature, they invite you to enjoy a must for the modern connoisseur.
The Mykonos vineyard is located in Maou. Here, in the agricultural area of Mykonos, near the beautiful Ano Mera, which stands out for its genuine Cycladic style, the winery under construction is set to include an ageing cellar, a production area, a tasting hall, a visitor reception area and catering and hospitality services.
The vineyard, which is being developed gradually, hosts the Cycladic varieties Aidani, Athiri, Assyrtiko, Mandilaria along the international varieties of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.As Nico Asimomytis started in 1994 together with the monastery Panayias Troulianis to produce in Marathi in Ano Mera Mykonos wines, many thought he was crazy. But Asimomytis caught with his PARAPORTIANO series attention and so it was that Federico Lazaridis , the son of Nico from drama ( Magiko Vouno Perpetuus ), showed interest in cooperation.
Since 2000, the two now collaborate and since then the wines from single vineyard on Mykonos develop always more – and the 2005 thru 2006 vintages show already, which has the potential for very dry Mykonian terroir. The varieties grown include Assyrtiko, Athiri, Malagousia, Monemvasia, Mandilaria, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. In addition to low-budget wines such as white and red AEGAEA , the revamped PARAPORTIANO series (white, rosé, red) and the interesting red blend POLISTAFYLOS METHIDOTIS , upscale white Assyrtiko Malagousia-waste is since September 2007 ANEMON NISOS 2006 ( ” Winds ‘Iceland’ ) on the market.
