Producer Profile


"Giorgos Balatsouras has been farming and vinifying rare local grapes, with organic certification, since 1998. His love for his birthplace, the village of Koniakos, which is very close to the ancient site of Delphi and the lake Mornou, shows in the honesty of the wines, which are made with the same methods that his family used for generations. This gives his wines a clearly traditional character." - Eklektikon

Where The Wines Come From


Delphi, a region in central Greece, is emerging as a promising area for natural winemaking. Nestled at the foot of Mount Parnassus and surrounded by olive groves and citrus orchards, Delphi benefits from a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters. The region's diverse soils, including limestone and clay, provide an ideal terroir for cultivating indigenous grape varieties such as Assyrtiko, Malagousia, and Agiorgitiko. Natural winemakers in Delphi prioritize organic and biodynamic farming methods, eschewing chemical additives and pesticides in favor of sustainable viticulture. By allowing for natural fermentation and minimal intervention in the cellar, they produce wines that showcase the purity of the fruit and the region's unique character. Delphi's natural wines are known for their crisp acidity, vibrant fruit flavors, and mineral undertones, with Assyrtiko offering citrus and stone fruit notes, Malagousia presenting floral aromatics, and Agiorgitiko providing ripe red berry flavors and soft tannins. As the demand for authentic and terroir-driven wines continues to grow, Delphi stands as a promising destination in the natural wine movement, offering a taste of Greece's rich winemaking heritage and commitment to sustainability with every bottle.
