  • A dry and tannic red displaying baked red fruits combined with sun dried tomatoes and savoury, earthy notes

  • A wonderful example of Xinomavro, with its complex, but typical bouquet of small berried red fruits, leather and pepper, clove and vanilla spice. Structured, with rounded tannins and a balancing acidity, this wine has well-integrated oak and quince on the finish.
  • Located in Amyndeon, Florina, in the northwestern part of Greece, the Alpha Estate wine company was established in the year 1997.  Expert viticulturist, Makis Mavridis and experienced oenologist, Angelos Iatridis, founded this company after many years of winemaking experience at different locations across the globe. They realized the winemaking potential of the Amyndeon region; therefore, they wanted to make full use of it by setting up their own company here.

    The vineyards, where the grapes are cultivated for the Alpha Estate wines, are located at a height of around 620 to 710m above sea level. The plateaus where the vineyard is located are blessed with good rainfall, dry summers and semi-continental climatic conditions. Therefore, the place is great for cultivating both indigenous and foreign red & white varietals. These include Syrah, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Tannat, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Xinomavro, Mavrodapnhe, Negro Amar0, Montepulciano, Malagouzia and Barbera.

    The Alpha Estate winery is located quite close to these vineyards; this ensures that there is not much time wasted in the transportation of the grapes.  Here, natural gravity is used for processing to avoid undue stress on the fruits during winemaking. Also, the winery is built using sophisticated technology and advanced equipment that doesn’t cause any danger to the ecosystem nearby. Oak casks are aged for many months in the neatly designed underground cellars at this winery.

    One of the major highlights here is that the winery has a different path to take the tourists to the underground cellars. This way, the oak casks aren’t disturbed at all. The materials used for constructing the interiors and exteriors of the winery are also chosen with great care, to not interfere with the character of the fruits processed inside. The Alpha Estate wines are classified into three ranges – Ultra Premium, Super Premium and Premium. All of these wines are created by paying ultimate respect to nature.
