Our vineyard is characterized by a semi-montane climate and covers an area of approx. 145000 m². It is one of the most remote vineyards in northwestern Greece, in which the native vines "Vlachiko", "Bekari" and of course the white vines "Debina" thrive, giving the region the rare privilege of bearing wines with a protected designation of origin.
Of course, many other Greek and international grapes such as "Malagouzia", "Cabernet Sauvignon", "Merlot" from Epirus, "Traminer" and "Sauvignon Blanc" are not to be missed from the Weinbergen.
The winery was founded in 1978 by the oncologist and winemaker Lefteris Glivanos on the hill Profitis Ilias near Zitsa. An important concern of the founder was to bring the winery with the characteristics and peculiarities of the region into a harmonious harmony. For this reason, only materials from the region were used in the construction of the plant; the architecture is reminiscent of a monastery building. The source of inspiration was the historic monastery Profitis Ilias, which is located close to our winery and dates back to the 16th century.
Our wine-making facilities take into account the current concept of the production of a high-quality wine - always with respect to tradition. We always make sure that the facilities, areas and functionality of our company meet all the requirements and meet the requirements to produce excellent wines and spirits - which has always been and will remain our most important goal.
The main building of our wine growing company covers an area of approx. 3000 m² and is part of a complex with an area of 5,500 m², to which the wine-making facilities, the offices of the administration and the special guest areas belong. The distillery is housed in a separate building, in which the epic Tsipouro of the wine estate Glivanos from the native vineyard "Debina" is obtained.
