Description

“…one of those hot estates that should draw consumer attention. This winery has and is making terrific wines.”
– Robert E. Parker’s The Wine Advocate

Dedication to the Greek vineyards brought winemaker Angelos latridis to the Amyndeon ECOSYSTEM. There he met vine grower Makis Mavridis and they both had the inspiration for the creation of the most diversified vini-viticulture exploitation. The term ECOSYSTEM derives from the Greek work OIKOS, which means house, the space we live on. The Amyndeon ECOSYSTEM is gifted with unique soil and geological, located on top of a calcareous substrate created by ancient deposits into which root systems are formatted. It enjoys exceptionally balanced climate conditions, especially during the crucial months of maturation, fully responsive to the high demands of balanced viticulture.
