Tsantali (Maronia)

The Tsantali family has been creating wines and distilling tsipouro and ouzo since 1890. The family’s philosophy focuses on the creation of quality wines and distillates which respect the age-old tradition of the wine growing regions.

The Tsantali Winery has privately owned vineyards and wineries in Agios Pavlos Halkidiki, on Mount Athos, Rapsani on Mount Olympus, Naoussa and Maronia in Thrace.

With the rebirth of historical vineyards and varieties, with the adoption of biological and integrated viticulture, with a strong viticultural and oenological team and a complete sales force with exports in over 45 countries, the Tsantali Winery is the international leader in the effort of portraying the best of wines and distillates from Greece.

Approximately 55% of Tsantali annual production is exported to countries all over the world, such as U.S.A., Canada, Brazil, Australia, China, Russia and many more.

The privately owned Tsantali Maronia vineyards and winery are situated near the small town of Maronia in Thrace. A place renowned from antiquity for producing quality wine. It is here where King Maron gave Odysseus fine red wine, which he offered to the Cyclops to aid in his escape.

The Tsantali Maronia vineyards are cultivated with the system of integrated management, spread across the amphitheatric hills with the sea on the south-east and the protection of Mount Ismaros on the north.

On these vineyards the Tsantali Family revived the nearly forgotten Mavroudi grape variety, which is cultivated along with Syrah, Merlot, Grenache Rouge and Limnio. From the white varieties the vineyards are planted with Chardonnay, Malvasia, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat of Alexandria.
From the Tsantali Maronia Vineyards the winery produces the successful “KANENAS” wine series, “Maronia Vineyards Mavroudi” and “Maronia Vineyards Syrah”.
