Ktima Gerovassiliou… the brainchild of Vangelis Gerovassiliou!
On the slopes of Epanomi, a few kilometres from the city of Thessaloniki, a meticulously tended vineyard surrounds the modern winery, where the renowned Ktima Gerovassiliou wines are produced. At Ktima Gerovassiliou the vineyard is cultivated with great care & enthusiasm that leads V. Gerovassiliou to constantly research & experiment with Greek & foreign varieties, both well- & less- known. New technological advances blend well with tradition throughout vine growing & vinification processes. The aim is to produce high-quality wines from grapes cultivated in the privately-owned vineyard which exhibit all the distinctive characteristics of the specific microclimate (terroir) of Epanomi. The creation of the Wine Museum, in combination with its various organised activities, including visits, wine tastings, educational programs, seminars, publications, lectures, theatrical, & musical performances, further contributes to the diffusion of wine-growing culture.
“Malagousia – Gliko Lefko” is made from Malagousia grapes that are left to overripen on the vines only during the years allowed by the weather conditions. The must of these grapes is vinified in French oak barrels & then aged for 3 years in the same barrels. The alcoholic fermentation is induced slowly & terminates months later. It has a nice straw gold colour, lively aroma & is viscous with flavours of apricot, pear & mango. The acidity is enough to provide grip & a sweet lusty finish.
