Alpha Estate is located in Amydeon, North West Greece, in the heart of the Amyndeon Appellation and a significant geo-morphological site. With beautiful views over the Petron and Vegoritida lakes, it lies between the picturesque Nimfeon village, the beautiful ski centre of Pisoderi (Vigla) and the ski resort of Ag. Athanasios (Voras - Kaimaktsalan).
The altitude, exceeding 600 metres, its immediate proximity to the lakes, the moderate year-long northwest winds, low precipitations, the alluvium, sandy, low fertility soils, combined with a scientifically designed single block vineyard are the components to a unique terroir in which we achieve expression in the production of complex, and unique multi-dimensional wines.
Alpha Estate is the brainchild of two visionaries, the 2nd generation Vinegrower Makis Mavridis and the Bordeaux trained Winemaker Angelos Iatridis. They aim to promote contemporary Greek vine-growing and winemaking to the world.
The main feature of our work is the "soul" of the people who contribute daily to this dream. Human factor is indispensable to the expression of all the elements gracefully offered by the unique ecosystem of the single block, privately owned 180-ha vineyard in producing our wines. Respect to nature, combined with high quality and deeply eco-friendly growing practices and the typicity of the produced wines, are possible with the implementation of mild, integrated viticulture and winemaking procedures based on the most recent international standards.
Professional know-how, experience, and the team's effort throughout all stages of production and promotion are necessary conditions for the desirable results, wines sealed under the Alpha Estate label.
