|Region:||Macedonia » Amyndeon|
ALPHA ESTATE is located in the Amyndeon region, in North West Greece. It is the brainchild of two visionaries, the skilled, second generation vine grower, Makis Mavridis and Angelos Iatridis, the winemaker, educated in Bordeaux, trained in Bordeaux, Alsace, Rhone, Champagne and winemaker to many, international well known, Greek wines. The company was founded in 1997. The reorganization of the vineyard was carefully studied and it began in 1994.
The sustainable management and exploitation of the privately owned, single block vineyard, with high standards in its installation and management, and the production of wines of distinctive Quality, in the state of the wine-art and most functional winery, located in the heart of the vineyard, are conditions that met all pre-requirements for the safeguarding of the qualitative potential. The final objective is the recognition of ALPHA ESTATE products within the international wine community with a simultaneous showcase of the Greek vineyard.
