Located in one of the most scenic parts of Attica, on the slopes of Mount Pendeli, this family winery makes delicious fruit-driven wines of great value and consistent quality.
The history of Kokotos wine is very much of a family story. It all began in the late 1970s when the Kokotos family decided to leave Athens and to move closer to nature.
They settled near the village of Stamata, which is fairly close to the capital, yet it is surrounded by the picturesque countryside. Soon, in 1980, Anne and George Kokotos planted their first vines on the northern slopes of Mount Pendeli, where in ancient times the god of wine, Dionysus, was worshipped.
The terroir here is excellent for growing high quality grapes. The vines are planted at an altitude of 450 metres and benefit from the colling effect of north and north-eastern winds.
From Vines To Wines
Kokotos vines grow on soil which is poor in organic matter and made up of limestone and slate. Therefore, it provides good water drainage for the vines as well as naturally limits their fertility. This results in higher concentration of aromatic compounds in the grapes and, further on, brings more complexity and better structure in the wines. Kokotos wine is typically full-bodied and can age well.
The estate’s vineyards are organically certified. Both international and indigenous varieties are cultivated with care and each bottle from the Kokotos wine range expresses unique characteristics of these grape varieties. The winery stands at the highest point of the estate, with gorgeous panoramic views over the mountains of Pendeli and Parnitha and the island of Evia.
