The Boutari company was founded in 1879 by Ioannis Boutaris and is one of the historic wineries in Greece. It operates six wineries in Greece in some of the most important wine-producing areas (Naoussa, Goumenissa, Crete, Santorini, Mantinia and Attica) and one in the South of France.
The broad variety of its products, which include more than 40 labels, cover an extensive range of preferences by consumers around the world.
Awards such as the International Winery of the Year 2010 award, earned for the 13th time, and the European Winery of the Year 2008 award testify to the exceptional work being carried out by the company’s wine-making team and the emphasis it places on quality.
The philosophy of the Boutari company is to promote wine culture in Greece by bringing consumers closer to wines through a broad range of high-quality wines for every occasion.
In the international field, the company’s goal is to be one of the leading ambassadors of Greek wines, highlighting Greek grape varieties and the unique locations where top-quality wines are produced.
The Boutari (Goumenissa) – Domaine Filiria Winery, northwest of Thessaloniki, went into operation in 1984 and was the only winery in the area for many years. This fact contributed to making grape-growing one of the major activities in the area once again.
The Filyria Domaine, Boutari’s privately owned vineyard, adheres to organic viticulture techniques and was planted in 1991. Today it is a model vineyard, both by local and Greek standards. The majority of the land is planted with the leading varieties of the area – Xinomavro and Negoska – as well as with international varieties, such as Chardonnay, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wines produced by the Boutari (Goumenissa) – Domaine Filiria Winery are Filyria, Goumenissa, Rosé Boutari Sec, Rosé Boutari Demi-Sec, Chardonnay Boutari and Cabernet Sauvignon Boutari.
