The Avantis Winery is located 4 km southeast of the town of Chalkida, in the village Mytikas or Ambelia in the heart of the Lilantio plain.
The farmhouse was built in 1936 in accordance with the traditional aesthetic of Lilantio houses. In that era, the grapes were deposited on the floor and pressed by feet. The must then flowed naturally into underground tanks, where the fermentation of the wine was taking place.
Now, these historic premises host the tasting room of the estate’s wines. The earlier structure was added to the present winery.
