Producer Profile


Dimitrios Kioutsoukis's family roots trace back to East Romylia since the early 1900s. Despite their long-standing dream of winemaking, financial constraints prevented them from starting a winery. Dimitrios initially pursued a career as a chemical engineer and later worked in the medical field to save money for his winemaking endeavor. Residing in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, a region once renowned for vine cultivation that dwindled after the phylloxera outbreak, Dimitrios decided to realize his dream. He underwent training in winemaking through the UC Davis extension program and, in 2010, planted 11 hectares of vines with Greek varieties such as Assyrtiko, Malagousia, Roditis, Xinomavro, Limnio, Muscat, and Moschfilero.

Where The Wines Come From


Natural wine production in Macedonia celebrates the region's rich viticultural heritage and diverse terroir. Nestled in the heart of the Balkans, Macedonia boasts a unique combination of continental and Mediterranean climates, along with a variety of soil types ranging from limestone to volcanic. Indigenous grape varieties such as Vranec, Kratoshija, and Stanushina thrive in this environment, producing wines that are bold, expressive, and full of character. Natural winemakers in Macedonia embrace sustainable farming practices, nurturing their vineyards with care and respect for the land. In the cellar, they employ minimalist techniques, allowing the grapes to ferment spontaneously with native yeasts and minimal sulfur usage, resulting in wines that authentically express the region's terroir. The resulting wines are vibrant, complex, and reflective of Macedonia's rich winemaking tradition. Whether enjoyed with local cuisine or savored on their own, natural wines from Macedonia offer a taste of the region's unique heritage and a glimpse into the future of sustainable viticulture.
