This vintage is a “mosaic” of four red grape varieties in equal quantities. A ruby color with purplish hues, we find on the nose a good aromatic intensity, shared between small red fruits, sweet notes of jasmine and white pepper. Its body is delicate with a refreshing character thanks to tannins as juicy as delicious. It has a slightly fruity finish.

Since early 1980s, Vaggelis Hatzivaritis and Olga Iakwvidou organized gatherings with friends every year in Goumenissa, in order to bottle the wine of the year. The interminable conversations and love for wine inspired them to create Hatzivaritis Estate.
In the beginning, they bought stretches at the region of Mpintampla in Goumenissa and, in 1994, they planted a 50 acre vineyard under the guidance and participation of Doros Vassiliadis and his sons, Viktoras and Kostas. The varieties cultivated are the Greek red ones: Xinomavro and Negkoska, as also the international ones of Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2000, a 50 acre plot in Vakoufia was bought, close to the village of Filyria, which was planted, one year later, with Xinomavro and Negkoska. In this plot was established the winery of the company which operated for the first time in 2007. Moreover, it was tested the adaptation of new varieties. Most of cultivation tasks are done manually to ensure the high quality of raw material and vines safety.
