For more than 80 years the family has conscientiously been involved in various wine techniques and in the cultivation of their vineyards.
It was in 1929 when Nikos the grandfather started producing his first wines from a small winery in Marmaroto, towards the northerly point of the island. He soon became well-known for the quality of his sweet wines made with traditional and almost pioneering methods.
Even when wine production slowly began to be abandoned in favor of the growing tourist industry, his son Kostas never hesitated in taking over the reins of the family business some years later. The year 2000 proved to be a huge turning point for the third generation and a time of major change.
Vasilis planted new Greek and International vines and also built a modern winery in Afousa, Asfendiou. The old cement tanks and cauldrons were replaced by stainless steel wine vessels and French oak barrels.
The traditional wine containers were replaced by labelled wine bottles from the estate where one can find throughout the island.
