La Tour Melas, Greece

La Tour Melas is young and dynamic winery who create well made, textural and interesting wines in Achinos.

The eponymous tower in Achinos overlooks and guards the vines that produce wine in its name, all managed with biodynamic and organic techniques. Kyros Melas planted his 11ha of vineyards, on slopes that run down towards the expanse of the Aegan Sea, with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot vines imported from France. These vines are hand-picked, then fermented and turned into wine with as little intervention as possible through the underground gravity flow winery of the property. To finish, each wine is bottled by hand, bringing to an end a truly artisanal process.
