The island of Lemnos was known in antiquity for the excellent quality of it’s wines, like it is quoted from Aristotle. Thousands of years later, the progress made by four generations of Chatzigeorgious family, embodies the tradition of quality and the art of a rare timeless creation. The enterprise is based in Karpasi, Lemnos. Under their supervision of cultivation in their wine factory, they make wine, aging and bottling strictly for high quality wine only. A blessed land, like archeological searches prove, has inspired the art of viniculture from Neolithic years. Therefore it is not accidental that “Limnia Gi” (the Land of Lemnos) in antiquity, was, as it is said, one of the most significant centers of Dionysus (Bacchus) worship. Let’s worship these great wines now..
