AVANTIS ESTATE COLLECTION
We are proud to make such a classy wine. The Collection comes from a single vineyard which has been giving us the best quality grapes for the last many years. We decided to keep it separate and give it a special treatment. Restrictive pruning, low yields (4000 kgr per hectare), strict selection of oak barrels. The limited number of bottles that are produced (500 – 1500) bottles a year, depend on the vintage diversity. It is sold 'en primeur'. It is our Grand Cru.
Protected Geographical Indication of Evia
