Kir-Yianni was founded in 1997 by Yiannis Boutaris, one of the leading figures in the Greek wine industry, when he left the Boutari Wine Group, the premium family wine company that his grandfather established in 1879.
The company continues a long family tradition focusing on the production of high quality wines, which combine style with authenticity and offer true enjoyment. They are produced from grapes cultivated at Kir-Yianni’s extensive vineyard holdings in the two wine regions of Naoussa and Amyndeon, on both sides of mount Vermio in north-western Greece.
Today Kir-Yianni, led by Stelios Boutaris, son of Yiannis, follows its vision into the next phase of its history by dynamically exploiting the cornerstones of the Kir-Yianni philosophy: desire for innovation, respect for tradition and a true knowledge of the wine, from the grape to the end consumer.
