Kourtesis Wine Estate is located in Andros, the second largest island of the Cyclades in Greece. In the revived vineyard in the area of Ipsilou, the estate gaiters amphitheatrically at Chora. The linearly aligned vineyard grows in stone-built levels or “bloodsuckers” at an altitude of 100 meters from the sea.
The sea meltemi carries the salty of the sea to the vineyards ensuring the smooth and healthy ripening of the grapes and thus to good wine.
Traditionally renovated buildings located inside, ensure a special stay to selected wine lovers who want an experiential wine experience.
The cave winery produces the wines that are particularly affected by the microclimate of Andros.
In the vineyard are cultivated with mild practices, only local Cycladic varieties such as Mavrotragano, Malagouzia, Assyrtiko, and Mandilaria, but also some indigenous varieties such as White Koumari and Potamisi.
The Andriotic Vineyard was reconstituted and developed in an area of 20.000 acres at an altitude of 100 meters above the sea of Chora.
The vineyards are linearly aligned and supported on special poles sheltering from the meltemi of Andros with a mild slope of the ground and east orientation.
With a philosophy of biodynamic cultivation, only Cycladic grape varieties are cultivated, such as Mautrotragano, Mandilaria, Assyrtiko, Malagouzia, Koumari and Potamisi.
158 days of sunshine per year, give the microclimate of the region the abundant photosynthesis for the healthy growth of grapes.
There is a special certification of organic farming.
