Steep, terraced slopes; sun-drenched soils rarely blessed with rain; a wind-battered island wherefrom Perseus – the greatest of heroes in Greek mythology – set out to slay the Gorgon Medusa. This is the terroir of our certified organic vineyards.
Bio and natural wines
“Surrounded by the sea’s salty flow,” as tragedian Euripides describes it in a fragment from a now lost play, Serifos is located in the western Cyclades, a complex of islands that form the earliest known cradle of ancient Greek civilization. While Serifos is inextricably linked with Greece’s mining history, the island also has a rich viniculture tradition, including its very own indigenous varieties.
We welcome visitors for wine-tasting every evening from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., in June, July and August, and by appointment outside summer months. The guided tours take place at 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. during the summer season. We strongly advise you to book in advance by email at email@example.com or by calling/WhatsApp message at +30 6979 239 597.
Our flagship is the wine made by the indigenous Serifiotiko variety, out of which we produce a dry white (Ksiro Chorio), and a natural, macerated amber wine aged in clay amphora (Oranz). We also vinify traditional varieties of the Cyclades, such as Mandilaria (dry rosé), Monemvasia (dry white) and Assyrtiko (dry white). Aspalathros, named after the local thorn plants of Serifos, is our other dry rosé blending rare local varieties. Last but not least, Charoumenos Vatrachos – Greek for `happy frog’ – is our semi-sweet rosé paying homage to the island’s most characteristic animal.
