Karydas Estate

The Karydas family vineyard is located in Naoussa, a traditional area producing appellation of origin red wines.

The Estate is 2.5 km outside Naoussa in the Ano Gastra area at an altitude of 205 metres. It has an area of 2.6 hectares on a slight incline with good drainage and a sandy clay soil containing calcium, which contributes to the quality of the raw material and the wines produced.

The vineyard, where cultivation of the Naoussa Xinomavro is dominant, was established in 1980 and the yield ranges between 750 and 800 kg per hectare.

Wine production began in 1994, when the winery was established on the Estate.

The harvest takes place with great care and hard work toward the end of September in three consecutive stages to ensure the best possible grape quality.

Following the wine-making process, the wine is left to mature for 18-20 months in French oak barrels, where the exuberant character of this wine softens and achieves balance.

After it is removed from the barrels and bottled, the wine is left to age reductively for another four to five months.

The Karydas Estate distributes its wines on the Greek market and exports to the United States and European markets (particularly England and Germany).
