Lykos Winery, Founded in 1991 on the Beautiful Island of Evia
Lykos Winery was founded in 1991 by Apostolos Lykos and is located in Central Greece on the beautiful island of Evia, just 80 km from Athens in Malakonta-Eretria. The creation of the winery was created initially to serve wines in the family restaurant. The restaurant is still running next to the winery, and both are open for wine tourists. The Lykos Family’s second generation winemakers respect their winemaking tradition while complimenting these traditions with the utilization of cutting-edge technology and machinery. They produce around 300,000 bottles every year and have received a certification from the Ministry of Tourism. Apart from wines, they also make natural cosmetics made from grapes.

The Vision of the Family and the Winery
They continue to realize the family’s vision, which is to contribute to the continuous improvement of the Evian vineyard. The vineyards span both sides of southcentral Evia, mountainous Viotia, and Nemea’s Koutsi area. The unique collaboration of soil, earth, and human knowledge create an explosive effect, combining the ideal terroir of Evian with unusually cold winters, which favors the phenolic ripening of the grapes.
The Main Grape Varieties, Local and International
The main grape varieties that grow at Lykos Winery are Malagousia, Agiorgitiko, Assyrtiko, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, and Syrah. The best grapes go into producing their famous red, white, rosé, and sparkling wines. The character of each grape variety is present in the wines, and the fruity taste and lasting aromas are the trademarks of Lykos Winery.
