In 2006, Pieria Eratini was founded in Kolindro, in the Prefecture of Pieria, by the oenologists Pavlos Argyropoulos and Andreas Pantos. The 150 acre Estate vineyards located on the foothills of Olympus mountain, are being cultivated organically and planted with varieties, such as Xinomavro, Kolindrino, Assyrtiko and Malagousia, as also with several, internationally recognised ones, such as Chardonnay, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon. The varieties cultivated were selected according to criteria, such as the soil, climate and plant adaptability. Kolindros is a town, situated on a hilly area in the north part of Pieria, at an altitude around 400 meters and surrounded by deep gorges. Formerly, was referred as an innaccessible to enemies, fort. To the south, east and west side of the town is located the forested area (the Mega Pierikos Forest) composed largely of oak, beech, chestnut, fir, pine, and maple trees. Pieria Eratini is placed, with particular care, on the hillsides around the Monastery of Saint Athanassius and the vineyards descend the slopes. Formerly, the most important vineplot of the region was located there.
