Wine Art - Estate
The people of Wine Art Estate share an enduring passion for the production of quality wines. A passion, that has found its ultimate expression in the development of the Estate’s vineyards and winery in Mikrochori, in the Prefecture of Drama. A passion for perfection that has led to the production of premium wines. Wine Art Estate was created by the civil engineer Yannis Papadopoulos and the architect Yannis Kalaitzidis, both successful professionals in their own field. Yannis Papadopoulos planted, in 1993, a small family vineyard in Mikrochori and started, as a hobby, to vinify his first wines in a small simple outlet. Two years later, in 1995, Yannis Kalaïtzidis joined the venture. The result was the establishment of Wine Art Estate and the first range of products, Techni Alipias, a red, a white and a rosé wine, were introduced and gained immediately their share in the quality wines market. The Wine Art Estate vineyards at Mikrochori overlook Mount Pangaion, which in antiquity was connecetd to the cult of God Dionysus and the Orphic mysteries. The vineyards were planted on carefully chosen south-facing slopes, well protected against late frosts. The soil is mainly sandy-clay, suitable for the cultivation of the Greek and foreign varieties and ideal for the development of their characteristics. The French grape varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, the Italian varieties Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, the Portuguese variety Touriga Nacional and the indigenous varieties Assyrtiko, Agiorgitiko, Lemiona are carefully tended, to ensure top quality fruit.
