Description

Nikolou Winery located in the heart of Koropi, 10 km from Athens Airport, is a classical architectural style building of the region, with stone walls and large stone arches, bringing to mind the family’s past and its long winemaking traditions.
The winery has been operating since 1872, engaged in producing retsina.
The need to modernize the winery’s facilities according to modern winemaking requirements became pressing and, beginning 1991, the old and outdated winemaking equipment was gradually replaced by modern, along with new stainless-steel temperature-controlled tanks.
On this new basis, along with the knowledge and experience gained through all these years, Savatiano, the traditional grape variety of Mesogeia, was vinified by controlled fermentation for the first time and consequently revealed its aromatic and flavorful potential, hidden all these years.
It is worth tasting the retsina, as well as a local and traditional sweet wine called “Nama” produced by concentrating the must through heating, and a special original sparkling retsina based on the traditional method of fermentation inside the bottle.
Furthermore, educational and learning events are organized for students interested in enology, as well as wine tasting sessions.
