In the place where our ancestors 150 years ago began the cultivation of raisins and wine grapes varieties.
Today the Olympia Land Estate is a family winery that began to produce small quantities of quality wines in the early 2000, and since 2008 creates the modern winery of the estate.
The history of the vineyard of the estate begins in 1985 with the revival of 15 acres of a family vineyard situated in Koskina (Ancient Olympia) and mainly consisting of the Moschofilero variety. The family Liarommati get used to make wine with the traditional way, such as pressing the grapes with the feet. It was like a festival because all the relatives arrived there to assist the family with the harvesting and after with the pressing. Imagine all the wemen of the family into the big stoned winepress to “dance” on the grapes until to gather all the must (juice) in the wooden barrels.
In the first building one finds the production area, especially designed to welcome the grapes straight from the vintage, with all necessary modern equipment to produce quality wines.
In the second building, a stone – built mansion, one can find the underground maturation cellar , where the red wines age, as well as big wine tasting room where the visitor can unveil the secrets of the Olympia Land wines.
Finally, products of the estate and other local delicacies are exhibited in the welcoming reception area of the winery for the visitor to enjoy.
