Our family’s winery and vineyards lie near the village of Lalioti, in Northern Peloponissos, 120km to the west of Athens. Aristidis Papargyriou, wanting to produce wines of excellent quality, planted the first grapevines in 1978. His son, Ioannis and daughter, Elpida who also studied at the Agricultural University of Athens and went on to complete their studies in Germany, are continuing his work. Today our wines are being exported to Germany, Switzerland, Italy and the Netherlands.
Our oldest vineyard lies on the slopes of Corinthia facing north towards the Gulf of Corinth. The shape of the little valley, where our grapevines are planted, enables a good circulation of the cool night breeze ensuring a slow and full grape ripening.
The other vineyard lies at high altitude (800m) near the village of Sofiana, facing southeast. Here the aromatic white grapes such as Muscat or Sauvignon Blanc but also the red grapes such as Syrah or Cabernet Sauvignon show their great potential.
Τop priority for us is the production of high quality grapes. Therefore the yields are kept low and the maturity of the grapes is constantly analyzed in order to harvest at the best stage. Furthermore, we believe that pesticides or fertilizers should be used only when absolutely necessary and in small quantities. Whenever it is possible organic products are applied. The method of “green harvest” is used in order to get more concentrated and ripe grapes.
