Ktima Brintziki, or the Green Winery, is located near the village of Lantzoi in the western part of the Peloponnese, close to Pyrgos and Ancient Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games and one of the most sacred places of ancient Greece.
Ktima Brintziki was officially characterized as Greece’s first ‘green winery’ in 2012. The characterization derives from its use of photovoltaic systems, the use of geothermal energy and other renewable energy sources. Geothermal techniques cover the cooling and heating needs of the tanks and spaces, while the photovoltaic module covers the power supply needs of the winery, operating on an ecological and environmentally friendly basis, producing organic wines with an energy footprint close to zero.
