Vourvoukeli Estate, Surrounded by Scenic Countryside and the Magnificient Beauty of Thrace

Witnessing the magnificent beauty of Thrace, the pillars of Vourvoukeli Wine Estate are deeply grounded in the Avdira region of Greece, a short drive away from Xanthia. The family uses only local ancient Greek grape varieties for the production of the highest quality wines. Surrounded by scenic countryside, the vineyards reveal the essence of the terroir in which they are grown.

Story of the Winery

On Thrace’s lands, tobacco cultivation was famous until the 1990s when some viticulturists started reintroducing the old grape-growing traditions. Nikos, a doctor by profession, spent his childhood in the vineyards and wanted to become a winemaker. In 1999, Nikos, along with his wife Flora, established Vourvoukeli Estate, fulfilling his dream. He revived the ancient Abderaan vineyard and replanted 20 acres with indigenous varietals. After he died in 2014, his sons – George and Odysseus, continued his father’s new winery. Today, the winemaking family owns up to 100 acres of vineyards.

Native Greek Grape Varieties

With complete respect for nature and its surroundings, the brothers use traditional methods to cultivate a wide range of native grape varieties. The grapes include Pamidi, Mavroudi, Assyrtiko, and Malagousia, along with Limnio and Merlot. They also tend to certain hillsides with Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Zoumiatiko, and Muscat of Alexandria.

All vineyards are manually picked at Vourvoukeli Estate and then moved to the cellar for further processing. Under PGI Avdira and PGI Thrace statuses, the estate produces world-class red, white, rosé, and dessert wines.
