Far away in place and time began the occupation of the Tatsis family with the vineyard and wine. Comes originally from the Ano Vodeno of the Eastern Romilia, an area which is vinicultural for centuries.
In 1924 the refugee’s grandfathers chose as a place of establishment the village of Goumenissa which is also vinicultural.
The Tatsis family acquired vineyards on the hillock of Libaskerit and Gerakona, an ideal position for viniculture in calcareous non irrigated soil. They were initially cultivated by the grandfather and now they have come to the hands of his son Christos, together with his own sons, Periclis and Stergios.
From 1998 the vineyards are being cultivated according to the rules of organic farming with an average production of about 6000 kilos per hectare. The plottage of the vineyard is 13 hectars and it consists mostly of Negoska and Xinomavro. Furthermore, the white varieties Roditis Alepou, Malagousia, Chardonnay and the red Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cinsaut are also cultivated. The vinification is taking place in the privately-owned installations of the traditional family winery and afterwards is following the aging of the red wine in oak barrels.
The Tatsis estate is a member of the Viticulturists of the Vineyards of North of Greece union and takes part in the program Wine Roads of North of Greece.
