The grapes come from fifteen to twenty-five-year-old vines planted on schist and limestone-clay soils in Naoussa. They were harvested by hand in late September and early October.

Fermentation was carried out in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, with 25% whole bunches used, and the wine was bottled unoaked.

Thymiopoulos

The Thymiopoulos family have been growing grapes in the Naoussa region of Greek Macedonia for generations, but it was Apostolos’ father Sergios who began growing them commercially to sell to local wineries. Whilst his father made a concerted effort to focus on improving quality, it was Apostolos himself who seized the opportunity to begin making wines under the family name. Having studied oenology in Athens he returned home and in 2003 he commenced production, with his first vintage released in 2005. Over time Apostolos has increased the family vineyard holdings, whilst still maintaining the same low-intervention approach to viticulture of the previous generations.
