Total area of 5 ha, at an altitude of 500 – 550 m.
The broader region of Askos is characterized by clay soil that favours viticulture. The location of the Arvanitidis Winery linear vineyard was carefully selected for its soil composition, well balanced in sand and clay, ideal for restrained plant growth.
The climate is continental, characterized by a significant difference in temperature between day and night during summer. The vineyard has a southwestern exposure to the sun, ideal for the sunlight and temperature conditions in Greece. During summer, the region receives an upcoming breeze from Lake Koronia that favors the ripeness of grapes.
The presence of this breeze also hinders the appearance of wine diseases and helps maintain the grapes in good health. As a result, organic cultivation is successfully adapted.
The entire vineyard is organically cultivated. All interventions to the vineyard, especially those aiming to plant protection, are compatible with the maintenance of the biological balance of the plants below and above ground, and aim to the protection of the consumer.
Planting is dense, with 3.000 – 4.000 vines per ha, while the rootstock used is 1103Ρ. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah are the varieties currently cultivated, while Nebbiolo and Barbera are cultivated experimentally.
Visiting the estate
Arvanitidis Estate is a member of the Wine Producers Association of the Northern Greece Vineyard, an association of winemakers that has created “Wine Roads of Northern Greece”, a network of wineries open to visitors.
Distinct signposts along the National Roads indicate the location of the wineries that form the network and are open for wine tours and wine tasting.
A visit to Arvanitidis Estate will take you to a walk through the vineyard, a tour of the winery and a wine tasting.
The winery is open to visitors every day, including weekends. Please call us to arrange your visit.
In 2009 new parts of the vineyard were planted with Greek varieties Malagousia and Xinomavro to create the future wines of the estate.
