Wine Art Estate was founded by civil engineer Yannis Papadopoulos and architect Yannis Kalaitzidis, both successful professionals in their respective fields. The enterprise started in 1993 when Papadopoulos began to pursue his passion with a small family vineyard at Mikrohori, a village in Drama prefecture. There he realized his dream in a modest space and began making wine as a hobby for personal satisfaction. Two years later, in 1995, Kalaitzidis crossed the winery’s threshold as well.
The result was Wine Art Estate and its first series of a red, white, and rosé wines under the Techni Alipias brand, which very quickly assumed a place in the market for new, high-quality Greek wines.
The aim of the estate was to highlight the excellent adaptation of certain cosmopolitan and Greek grape varieties to the ecosystem of the region of Drama and it was achieved.
The first part of the elegant, contemporary winery of the Wine Art Estate was built in 1998, followed in 2007 by its extension to the other side of the road. Work was completed in 2008, resulting in two beautiful building complexes the two towers of which are parallel to each other at the ends of the two complexes and are fine examples of elegant architectural harmony.
