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 (Naoussa) winery was the Boutari company’s first winery when it started out in 1879. The company’s role in the history of viticulture in the Naoussa zone was more than just decisive, both in preserving the local Xinomavro variety at a time when it had almost been entirely abandoned and in highlighting the Naoussa zone quality wines produced in specified regions (quality wines PSR or VQPRD).
A tour around the production areas and the winery’s historic cellar, which contains more than 3,000 barrels and a unique wine vault of old vintages, are the best introduction to the history and philosophy of the Boutari company.
The company’s main bottling plant is located at the Boutari (Naoussa) winery facility where its important products are bottled and include Nemea Boutari, Agiorgitiko Boutari, Lac Des Roches, Kritikos White and Kritikos Red.
The wines produced at the Boutari (Naoussa) Winery include Naoussa Boutari, Xinomavro Reserve Boutari, Grande Reserve Boutari, Cava Boutari, Nouveau Boutari, Merlot Boutari and Syrah Boutari.
