With respect for nature and man, we create wines that reflect the terroirs and the grape varieties which spawned them.

Dimitris Hatzimichalis

Domaine-Hatzimichalis-logoDomaine Hatzimichalis was founded by Dimitris Hatzimichalis in 1973. He started planting vines in the recently acquired 9 he (20 acres) of land in the region of Atalanti in Central Greece, following an ancient tradition in viticulture, confirmed by numerous testimonies and archaeological evidence.

The first grapes planted were Cabernet Sauvignon for the reds and the Greek grape variety Robola for the whites. The first years, were not easy and Dimitris maintained a turkey farm which helped him support his vineyards expenses. The turkey has since been proudly displayed on the label.

It was in the early 80’s when a batch of 1000 bottles of high quality Cabernet Sauvignon astounded the Greek wine industry. A decade later, the quality of the Domaine Hatzimichalis wines was recognized globally earning a number of awards.

The vineyard was gradually increased by buying selected plots on the slopes of the mountains surrounding Atalanti Valley. Today they own a total of 220 he (550 acres) of a complex and unique mosaic of vineyards.

Philosophy

Since its foundation in 1973, Domaine Hatzimichalis leads the way with passion and expertise in the renaissance of Greek wine. Domaine Hatzimichalis uses the Greek term chora to describe the combination of land – climate – human, or what the French call “terroir”.

The main natural trait of this ecosystem and its uniqueness is the cool breezes that flow from Mt Parnassus to the sea and vice-versa, in summer and winter alike. This is the setting for the four blocks of terroirs of Domaine Hatzimichalis: the Old Vineyards, the Lower Vineyards, the Upper Vineyards -all known for centuries as localities and vine-growing sites- and New Vineyards, the terroirs created by Domaine Hatzimichalis.

Each of these blocks is divided into individual terroirs, and these in turn into different sections where we systematically cultivate different grape varieties.

The diversity of Domaine Hatzimichalis vineyards, allows the creation of a wide collection of authentic wines with distinctive style.

The Wines

chatzimih_red

Alfega Erythros 2010

Dry Red Wine
PGI Atalanti Valley

At Domaine Hatzimichalis they know their French varieties really well and they have been using them to make cosmopolitan wines for decades. This excellent Bordeaux blend red is a typical example: it’s very well made, with a nose of typical fruity and spicy aromas and a palate that’s firm yet well balanced, with just the right length. This is a typical choice for red meat and yellow cheese pairings at a wide range of dining occasions.

Alfega Lefkos 2016

Dry White Wine
PGI Atalanti Valley

An interesting white blend that brings together three grapes that can clearly benefit from each other’s “company”. Interchanging layers of floral, herbal and fruity aromas prevail in the nose, while the palate is round and fresh, with intense acidity and an elegant citrusy aftertaste. This is an excellent aperitif wine that could also be offered by the glass at a bar or a party. In addition, it’s ideal to pair with white sauce pasta, salads and veggie risotto.
(Ted Lelekas, June 2017)

chatzimih_malag

Malagousia Oaked 2016

Dry White Wine
PGI Atalanti Valley

A beautiful approach that aims to tame the familiar, “explosively floral” character of a typical Malagousia white, with the help of oak from the barrel. Its influence is discrete yet critical, as it adds a nice spicy effect on the nose, while the palate is delightfully crisp, refreshing and long. This is a wine that can bring out the best in a variety of complex dishes, especially those with spicy and ethnic touches, such as Indian and Thai.
(Ted Lelekas, June 2017)

Alfega Rosé 2016

Dry Rosé Wine
PGI Atalanti Valley

It’s not only new, it’s novel too. It’s also one of the most fragrant rosé wines that I have tasted lately. This is most likely owed to the aromatic white Malagousia that’s co-fermented with the red Grenache and Syrah grapes. The resulting wine is full of nice aromas of flowers and summer fruit and has a palate that’s delightfully approachable and refreshing. Enjoy it as an aperitif or a companion to a seafood cocktail or a platter of cheese and/or cold cuts.
