Alpha Estate:    About  |  The Wines  |  Ratings & Awards  |  Maps  |  Media  |  Contact

Alpha Estate is located in Amyndeon, North West Greece,
in the heart of the Amyndeon appellation and
in a significant geo-morphological site.

alpha-estate-logoWith beautiful views over the Petron and Vegoritida lakes it lies between the picturesque Nimfeon village, the beautiful ski center of Pisoderi (Vigla) and tha ski resort of Ag. Athanasios (Voras- Kaimaktsalan).

The altitude, exceeding 600 meters, its immediate proximity to the lakes, the moderate yearlong north west winds, low precipitations, the alluvium, sandy, low fertility soils, combined with scientifically designed single block vineyard are the components to a unique and multidimensional wines.

Alpha Estate is the brainchild of two visionaries, the second generation Vinegrower Makis Mavridis and the Bordeaux trained Winemaker Angelos Iatridis. Their aim is to promote the contemporary Greek vinegrowing and winemaking to the world.

The philosophy

Human factor is indispensible to the expression of all elements gracefully offered by the unique ecosystem of the single block, privately owned 105ha vineyard in the production of our wines.

Main feature of our work is the “soul” of the people than contribute every day to this dream. Respect to nature, combined with high quality and deeply eco-friendly growing practices and the typicity of the produced wines are possible with the implementation of mild, integrated viticulture and winemaking producers, based on the most recent international standards.

Professional know-how, experience and the team’s effort throughout all stages of production and promotion are necessary conditions to the desirable result, wines sealed under the Alpha Estate label.

The Wines

alpha-estate-red-s-m-x

Alpha Estate (SMX) 2013

Dry Red Wine
PGI Florina

An emblematic red wine that reflects beautifully the combination of terroir potential and winemaking philosophy of the estate. Xinomavro, the area’s flagship grape, rules, although the blend with Merlot and Syrah enhances its complexity, while maintaining structure and balance. A wine with significant aging potential that will pair ideally with rich red meat dishes and mature cheeses.
(Ted Lelekas, October 2016)

GRAPE/BLEND:
Syrah, Merlot, Xinomavro

alpha-estate-sauvignon-blanc

Alpha Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Dry White Wine
PGI Florina

Old world meets new world in this delightful white wine, which boasts explosive aromas of citrus and exotic fruits and herbs in the nose, with crisp acidity and textbook fullness in the palate. A highly versatile wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif, while it can expertly accompany starters, and can even support a full meal of fish, seafood or pasta.
