Area: Central Macedonia, Thessaloniki, Epanomi

Since 1981 Domaine Gerovassiliou has been active in the cultivation of the vine and the making of wine. Just a few kilometres outside Thessaloniki in the hillsides of Epanomi, the modern winery in which the well-known wines of our Domaine are produced, is surrounded by the carefully tended vineyard.

At Domaine Gerovassiliou the cultivation of grapes is carried out with special care and constant research and experimentation is carried on in well-known and little known Greek varieties. We are familiar and keep up with technological progress in the productive process. We apply, though, traditional and classic methods aiming at the production of quality wines whose grapes are grown exclusively on our estate and which express the characteristics of the microclimate and terroir of our land.

Our Wines

Experience and combination of technological progress in the productive process with the use of more traditional and classic methods leads to the production of quality wines with typical features of the microclimate and terroir of Epanomi. All wines produced in the Domaine Gerovassiliou are classified as Regional Wines of Epanomi. 20% of the annual production is exported in the EU, USA, Canada and Japan.

Dry White Wine

Created from the successful combination of Assyrtiko with the rare variety of Malagousia. The wine’s colour is bright blonde with greenish glints. Expressive aroma, with alternative impressions that bring memories of exotic fruits together with pepper, orange, melon, herbs and lemon. First contact to the mouth is delicate, whereas the whole presence of the wine is marked by richness, harmony, pleasant vividness and lemon finish. Best enjoyed fresh, during its first two years.

  • Served cool at 8-10° C
  • Perfect matched with seafood, fishes, white meat with plain sauces, pasta, Greek traditional salad with tomato and feta-cheese.

Sauvignon Blanc - Fume

Derives from the variety of Sauvignon Blanc, cultivated in a small part of our vineyard. After destemming and light crushing, skin-contact pre-fermentation extraction, the alcoholic fermentation follows at approx. 20° C in new French oak barrels. The wine remains with its primary yeast lees (sur lie) for approx. 6 months with periodical stirring.

Bright golden yellow colour. Complex aroma with a blending of summer and exotic fruits (such as pear, mango and pineapple) in a background of smoked vanilla and aromatic herbs. Due to its oak contact the wine is well balanced, structured and mature. Further ageing potential up to 7 years.

  • Served chilled at 10-12° C
  • Best enjoyed with seafood, fishes with oily texture, poultry or pork with white sauces, smoked cheeses
