With vineyards at altitudes of 850m, in the village of Asprokambos, Elia Bizios' vineyards sit at the highest point of Nemea. His estate enjoys some of the best terroir with the cool hill-top night-time temperatures of the vineyards resulting in wonderful purity of fruit and firm, age-worthy structure in the wines.

Viticulture

Asprokambos is a unique region in the appellation of Nemea. Due to its geographic placement and altitude it produces special wines with excellent ageing potential, rich in aromas, phenolic components and acids. This has been noted by Julia Harding MW as the region's "best of the best for fresh and well-structured wines for ageing”. Surrounded by lush green vineyards, in the valley that is shaped between the mountains of Ziria and Gavria it is another postcard worthy setting in Greece, capable of producing world class wines just waiting to be discovered.

Winemaking

Elia’s aim is to create wines of the highest quality whilst maintaining respect for the environment and its biodiversity. He makes authentic and honest wines that truly express the terroir from which they emanate by utilising a combination of traditional techniques with modern technology. He picks his organically grown grapes from vineyards with low output per acre to achieve the best possible concentration of varietal characteristics.

Highlights
  • Organically grown grapes from low yielding vineyards and a healthy respect for the environment and biodiversity.
  • Flavoursome wines with concentrated varietal characteristics.
