The respect and admiration that Giorge Tzivanis felt for the way of life of previous generations gave him the idea to start collecting, from a very young age, various items from people’s everyday life.
Year after year this effort became greater. It found support and contribution from his wife Chrissie and while travelling for business purposes to many parts of the world, they managed to compile a great deal of artefacts so as to create a museum with a worldwide collection.
This museum, which is recognised by the Ministry of Education in Greece, offers the visitor the opportunity to admire a vast collection of winemaking tools, such as a wine press, grape crushers, distillation devices, openers, barrel making tools, viniculture tools, sprinklers and more.
The visitor will also find olive oil mills, presses and jars. Moreover there is a unique collection of scales weights, flat irons and many more artefacts concerning sowing, textiles musical instruments, the history of glass and so on.
Every artefact has its own story to tell.
TOUR AND TASTING
The visitor of the winery will also see the Wine and Folklore Museum housed in the winery’s halls, recognized by the Ministry of Culture where the visitor will admire a large collection of old tools and other items for the wine the olive oil production and general agricultural production and handicrafts collected from all around the world and
curated with personal care by Giorgos, Chrissi and Yiannis Tzivanis.
A wine tasting of three wines concludes the visit.
The Tzivani family has been dealing with viticulture and the winemaking using exquisite grape varieties since 1982. Lovers of good wine themselves, they have planted in their 28 Ha, privately-owned organic vineyards in Ritsona and Arma of Viotia prefecture, high-quality Greek and international grape varietals such as Malagouzia, Agiorgitiko, Athiri, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, among others.
The estate’s vineyard is located in an area of unparalleled beauty, known since antiquity for its microclimate and ideal for the production of excellent wines. The altitudinal differences and soil composition contribute to the complexity and peculiarity of the flavours and aromas that distinguish the wines of the Tzivanis estate.
The main vision of the family is to develop the particular character of each variety both at the vineyard and then at the winery, so as to fully develop the unique personality of each wine.
The wines are exported to many countries and have received awards both in Greek and international competitions, with gold awards in Berlin, Lyon, Vienna, Shanghai, Daejeon (Korea), Tokyo, London, and elsewhere.
