Estate Manolesakis

MANOLESAKIS ESTATE of the Manolesaki family has been active in viticulture & winemaking since 1989, a pivotal period that coincides with the beginning of the vineyard of the Hadrian area in Drama, with the cosmopolitan French varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Syrah.

Giorgos Manolesakis is one of the first to revive viticulture in this historic area, who, with the help of his son Stavros Manolesakis, is personally involved in all the work of cultivating the vines and producing the wines of the estate and making sure that the respect for the dictates of Nature alongside the optimization of the viticultural & production process, so that the vines can yield the typical characteristics of the microclimate (terroir) of the area, which is also the original goal of this effort.

The aim of the people of the estate is to produce high quality wines exclusively from the privately owned vineyard, in order to highlight the particularities of each variety, in absolute harmony with the microclimate and soil of the vineyards, the typical characteristics of the terroir of the area.

In 1998, the winery’s facilities were completed with a state-of-the-art wine production unit of 1500 sq.m. located in the heart of the privately owned vineyard of 200 acres on the slopes of Hadriani, a few kilometers outside the city of Drama.

In 2004, the continuous search led to new crops of Greek native varieties such as Malagouzia, Moschato Alexandria, Assyrtiko, and Agiorgitiko while in 2008 the also Greek varieties Moschomavro and Limnio were added and in 2014 the variety Pinot noir.
