About us

The creation

… chatting on cold winter nights in front of the idyllic flame of the fireplace

 

… conversations under the starlight on the terrace with the cool summer breeze,

 

Memories that gave shape to emotions! Emotions created thoughts and thoughts became powerful ideas that gave strength to create something new…

 

An open door winery (a winery with open doors to the public), a winery built from scratch, the Kourkoulou winery!

Our dowry? The support of our parents. Our father’s love for nature in general and our mother’s insight to unite all the pieces.

 

We started a few years ago… When we had capital controls? Did you remember? We promised not to put it down. We will turn to the primary sector we thought… to do what we have! Then what did we have? Only two tractors and a few small vineyards!

 

…but we also had thoughts, feelings, ideas, inspiration and dreams. With these we created the winery.

 

In the few harvests that we have produced so far we feel that the path is long and difficult; but we are young, we are optimistic and we are here!

The team

NEAR THE VINEYARDS

Stratos

Versatile and handyman. Retired teacher who met his first love, cultivation. He wanted to become an in-depth agronomist. He found ground to express himself and to be close to nature. Self-taught in the art of organic viticulture, he takes care of all the vineyards of the winery.

ΔΙΠΛΑ ΣΤΟΥΣ ΑΝΘΡΩΠΟΥΣ

Πολυξένη / Ξένια

Πολυπράγμων και πολυτεχνίτης. Συνταξιούχος δάσκαλος που συναντήθηκε με την 1η του αγάπη, την καλλιέργεια. Κατά βάθος γεωπόνος ήθελε να γίνει. Βρήκε έδαφος να εκφραστεί και να είναι κοντά στη φύση. Αυτοδίδακτος στην τέχνη της βιολογικής αμπελουργίας φροντίζει όλα τα αμπέλια του οινοποιείου.

BEHIND THE CONSTRUCTIONS

Pavlos

The one who read all the legislation for the inclusion of the winery in the Leader program and its implementation. The one who made the plans of the building as an engineer. And of course the one that is best expressed when dealing with the facilities in the production area. Electrical, mechanical…

FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE

Eliana

Young and anxious about her subject. The one does not preclude the other. He has accomplished great things in the field of wine. Oenologist scientist with basic principles of good and healthy grapes, low interventions and the power of the possible. Her consulting is crucial and the cooperation is excellent.

BEHIND THE TASTE

Chrysoula

Inspirer of the idea and creation of the winery. The man behind the flavours that are served during the taste tests but also behind the simplest but at the same time very useful work that is necessary to be done for the smooth operation of the winery.
