In 1999, the family of Nikos and Flora Vourvoukeli planted 2 hectares on the fertile hills of the area with indigenous and foreign wine grape varieties, with a view to realising their vision of reviving the famous Avdira vineyard. It gradually developed into a privately owned 12-hectare vineyard which is cultivated in accordance with the regulations for organic farming. The choice of organic farming was made due to the particular favourable climate of the region.

Produced from the oldest Greek variety, Limnio, the wine was aged for 6 months in oak barrels with the application of innovative vinification methods. This micro-oxygenation process creates a wine with mild aromas of berries, with the aromas of oak in the background. Its colour is crimson, with aromas such as black cherry, pomegranate, and notes of pepper and curry, as well as dark chocolate. With a robust taste, pleasant acidity, and well-integrated tannins. Full-bodied, but elegant at the same time, it displays a long-lasting peppery aftertaste.
