feed Domaine Gerovassiliou

Domaine Gerovassiliou is the brainchild of Vangelis Gerovassiliou. In 1981, he started reviving the family vineyard that spreads over 2,5 hectares at Papamola region in Epanomi, approximately 25km to the south-east of the city of Thessaloniki. In this unique ecosystem he planted mainly Greek, but also foreign grape varieties. The first vinification took place in 1986 at the modern winery that was built by the vineyard. All Domaine wines are produced from grapes cultivated in the private vineyard, now stretching over 56 hectares.
Domaine Gerovassiliou is a single private vineyard stretching over 56 hectares. The climate in the region of Epanomi is Mediterranean with mild winters and temperate summers, cooled by sea breezes. The vineyard is surrounded by sea on its three sides at a distance of three kilometers, while its west side faces Thermaikos Gulf and Mount Olympus, extending over the beaches of Pieria. The soil is mainly sandy with a few clayey substrates and calcareous rocks. It is rich in sea fossils, since the surrounding hilly area was formed by sea deposits.
Impressive are the findings of field surveys conducted by German scientists reporting that the vineyard is inhabited by 28 different bird species.
The vineyard is cultivated according to the standards of an Integrated Management System that aims to produce wine grapes following a certified cultivation procedure, meeting all relevant quality and safety requirements and respecting the environment, the vineyard's employees and the consumer. Primary concern is the meticulous care of the vineyard, therefore all rural tasks - including harvest- are done by hand.
Greek and foreign varieties were planted and are being cultivated with great care: Malagousia -first vinified by Vangelis Gerovassiliou- and Assyrtiko -first cultivated in the island of Santorini- are the Greek white varieties of the Domaine, while Limnio -an ancient Greek variety also mentioned by Aristotle- Mavroudi and Mavrotragano are the Greek red varieties. Furthermore, French white varieties -Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier- and the red ones -Syrah, Merlot and Grenache Rouge- are being cultivated. In parallel, Domaine Gerovassiliou always attempts new experimental cultivations of both Greek and foreign grapes.
