Domaine Gerovassiliou is located in Epanomi, a few kilometres southeast of Thessaloniki, and was established by Vangelis Gerovassiliou. After finishing his studies at the Agricultural School of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Vangelis Gerovassiliou specialised in oenology and viticulture at the University of Bordeaux.
In 1981, he embarked on restoring his family’s vineyard by planting the Malagousia variety in an ecosystem ideally suited to viticulture. He produced wine from and saved this old, forgotten variety with the help of Aristotle University Viticulture Professor Vassilis Logothetis. Assyrtiko, Limnio, Mavroudi, Mavrotragano and foreign varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier, Syrah and Merlot thrive on the estate. The first vinification took place in 1986 at the privately owned winery built within the vineyard.
Today, the privately owned vineyard is about 50 hectares in size and grapes are cultivated according to integrated management guidelines. The goal is to produce grapes suitable for winemaking following a certified process that meets all specifications for quality and safety, while maintaining respect for the environment, the worker and the consumer. Knowledge and awareness of developments in production technology, in combination with the use of more traditional and classical methods, lead to the production of quality wines with the typical characteristics of the Epanomi area terroir.
All Domaine Gerovassiliou wines are produced from grapes grown in its own vineyards and are Epanomi Regional Wines. It is no wonder that they have received international awards and distinctions as a result of their good quality and timeless consistency.
Domaine Gerovassiliou is also a pioneer in winery touring. A visit to the estate includes a tour of the vineyard, the winery and the wine museum, while tasting of the Domaine wines takes place in specially designed wine-tasting halls.
