There is an underground cellar for the maturation of the red wines in french barrels and a wine bar for the wine tasting of the Avantis Estate multi awarded wines.
During the year the cold winds blowing from the north by Mountain Dirfi (1743m.), dry the leaves of the vineyards, thus avoiding the development of diseases. All these are elements of a unique terroir, the microclimate of the vineyards of Avantis Estate. The varieties that have been planted are indigenous from Evia and international.
