Located in the Papamola region of Epanomi, just a few miles from Thessaloniki, Ktima Gerovassiliou has shaped the history of wine making in Northern Greece ever since 1981. It is thanks to the inspiration of Vangelis Gerovassiliou and the wonderful ecosystem he has planted that today this is one of the best estates for wine enthusiasts. You must surely recall the name Gerovassiliou, since he has been one of the co-founders of Ktima Biblia Chora in Kavala. Ktima Gerovassiliou is a single private vineyard stretching over 71 hectares and represents the love of the entire family for wine making, as the legacy will continue on, passed on to the newer generations.
Perhaps the best of the best, one of the world renowned wine varieties that have brought fame and universal acknowledgement to Ktima Gerovassiliou, is none other than Malagousia. It was recently ranked among the top 10 wine varieties in the entire world, along with Ovilos White from Ktima Biblia Chora. Now, it is worth pointing out the fact that the local grape variety of Malagousia was actually saved from extinction thanks to one man. It was Vangelis Gerovassiliou that managed to revive this type of wine and the outcome has been truly remarkable. It is a mature white wine, aging in French oak barrels and gaining its enrichment in flavor and fragrances from fruits, such as mangoes and pears. Citrus and lemon are the perfect capping stone for a great wine that awakens your senses and travels you far away in time.
Of course, once you schedule a wine tour at Ktima Gerovassiliou, you will have the opportunity to taste other wine varieties, too. Sauvignon and Chardonnay, Syrah and Evangelo, Avaton and Viognier are some of the finest options for you to try out. But it is true that you will also be fascinated by the modern facilities, the attention to detail and the sophisticated techniques used for aging and bottling. This is one of the top estates in Northern Greece and the world, without a doubt!
