Estate Protopapa was established in 1985 by Mr. A. Protopapas, a chemical engineer, with the intention of making high quality wine for the Greek and international markets. Today the winery produces wines from privately-owned vineyards of about 65 acres [250.000 m2] in the Macedonian region of Kavala. The winery is situated 250 m above sea level on the foothills of Pageon mountain, and about 4 km from the Mediterranean sea. This combination offers mild climate and vineyards to make wine of fine quality. The soil is argilic and 50% limestone and for this reason it gives high aromatic wines and high alcohol normally above 13%. The winery also co-operates with the Byzantine Monastery of Dionysus in Mount Athos where wine has been produced for many hundreds of years. The winery is of 20 acres and within the vineyard. The Kariani winery of about 5.500m2 has several underground caves for aging the wine in oak barrels (about 800) and for aging bottles (about 400.000 of 0.75lt). – Description from Dragac
