Domaine Samartzis is a family owned business located in Ascra, a small village at the slopes of Helicon mountain in Boeotia Greece. Ascra is the birth place of one of the greatest ancient oral poets Hesiod, with a 2000 years tradition in vine cultivation and wine making. Pausanias traveler & geographer refers Ascra as the place of “many grapes and many vineyards” We own a 12 hectares vineyard planted in 1962 with a unique local Greek grape variety named Kontoura White. “Two Rivers” take its name from the scenic beauty of the Muses Valley wine country, a great Greek PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) wine producing region, where the two rivers Permissos & Olmios run along the valley beside our vineyards. The fruits that goes into “Two Rivers” wine are from a few selected vineyards, where the combination of soils, climate and growing conditions allow the grapes to develop great varietal character and balance. This unique “terroir” combined with the indigenous Greek grape variety the Kontoura White, provides us with the needed assets from nature to produce the “Two Rivers” in a way to be a wine with “character”.
