There is no better way to learn about the production of greek wine than to follow a trip which passes through the vineyards, continue into the cellars, informed about the local delicacies and you will have the chance to taste wines of Ilia. The history of the vineyard of the estate begins in 1985 with the revival of 15 acres of a family vineyard situated in Koskina (Ancient Olympia).The family Liarommati get used to make wine with the traditional way, such as pressing the grapes with the feet. It was like a festival because all the relatives arrived there to assist the family with the harvesting and after with the pressing. Imagine all the wemen of the family into the big stoned winepress to “dance” on the grapes until to gather all the must (juice) in the wooden barrels.
In our days the field of 15 acres expanded and the Kladeos River flows through the privately-owned vineyard, which now covers an area of 100 acres. This area now is planted with the local white varieties of Asyrtiko (Asserteko), Malagouzia (Malayousia) and Roditis (Rodetes), the noble red variety of Agiorgitiko (Ayioryeteko), the French variety of Chardonnay Blanc as well as the foreign varieties Merlot and Syrah.
