“In this unique place, with great enthusiasm and love for quality wine, we created Melmar winery.

Our goal is to highlight the potentials of the vineyards of Thrace, and especially of Samothrace as a winemaking zone. “

 

The Winery
Melmar winery is located in the region of Dafnes, in Samothrace.
It was established in 2013, and became active within the domestic and international market, during 2015.
It offers superior oenological equipment such as, an independent laboratory with modern tools for testing and measuring, stainless steel refrigerated double tanks, French oak barrels for the aging of wine, a functional wine cellar with the ideal humidity and storage temperature, a degustation room, and a special conference room.
All housed in a building of unique architectural beauty. Our winery is located in the shadow of Mount Saos – the highest mountain in the Northeast Aegean, reaching up to 1.611 meters.
Hospitality services will be available soon within the premises of our winery, as well as the completion of the construction of a distillery.
The cultivation of our own organic vineyard continues with special care, while making frequent experimentations on native and international varieties that will thrive in our region.
For the time being, the grapes which we process come from selected vineyards of Thrace, and of permanent collaborating vine growers.
Frequent visits to the vine growers and sampling from the vineyards are done as we approach the harvest season in order to observe and monitor the grape maturation.
The transfer to our winery is made with special refrigerated trucks.
The final sorting of the grapes is done manually so that the final outcome is healthy and free from harmful external factors.
The vinification process is made under strict temperature ranges, as all tanks are controlled by the latest refrigeration systems.
Quality controls are constantly made with the application of modern and traditional methods.
The maturation, aging, and storage of wines is done in suitable humidity conditions of 60-65% and temperatures of 15-170C.while bottling is done with the use of nitrogen, and the total absence of oxygen.
