Kontozisis Organic Vineyards

Kontozisis Organic Vineyards, nestled in Karditsa, Thessaly's rustic heartland, thrives amidst the landscape dubbed Greece's "bicycle capital" and the birthplace of the remarkable Limniona red grape. Situated on the slopes of Mount Agrafa, the winery spans two distinct terroirs between Kanalia and Dafnospilia.

Since 1991, Kontozisis has championed certified organic agriculture and vinification, pioneering organic certification in Greece. His steadfast dedication to sustainability underscores his unwavering commitment. Despite initial reluctance within Karditsa's local market towards organic practices, Kontozisis steadfastly pursued chemical-free farming and the crafting of honest, natural wines.

Where The Wines Come From


Karditsa, located in central Greece, produces natural wines that reflect the region's rich winemaking heritage and diverse terroir. Nestled among rolling hills and fertile plains, Karditsa benefits from a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters. Here, winemakers embrace sustainable farming practices and minimal intervention in the cellar, allowing the true expression of the fruit and the land to shine through. Indigenous grape varieties such as Xinomavro, Agiorgitiko, and Assyrtiko thrive in this unique environment, yielding wines of exceptional purity and complexity. From elegant and aromatic whites to bold and robust reds, Karditsa's natural wines capture the essence of the region's vibrant terroir and cultural heritage, inviting drinkers to experience the true essence of Greek winemaking with each sip.
