Village and Terroir

Village & Terroir

The privately owned vineyards, the extent of which are 100 stremmata (10 hectares), are found at an altitude of 850m in the village of Asprokampos, the highest point of the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Nemea. Asprokampos is a unique region in the appellation of Nemea. Due to its geographical location and altitude it produces special wines with good aging potential; rich in aromas, phenolic components and acidity. The grapes are a product of organic viticulture from vineyards with low output per hectare, thus achieving the best possible concentration of characteristics per variety.

SOIL

Mainly clay soil  lime rich, known as Calcareous Clay, stay cooler and retain water. These soils are famous for producing some of the boldest red and white wines in the world.

CLIMATE

Cold, wet & snowy winters, with low average temperatures (dropping below zero between December and March) are followed by rainy Spring. Summers are hot  with temperatures hiking above 30 Centigrade during the day, but the night breeze cools down the heat load from the vines. All vines are dry planted as the rainfall and snow provide adequate watering.

GRAPE

The Agiorgitiko is a fragrant red-wine grape. The hallmarks of the grape are low acidity, medium body, plush fruitiness, overlaid by notes of spices and ripe plum.
