We produce our wines with utmost care and passionate love.

chrisohoou-logoFour kilometres from Naoussa, known as “The City of Wine and Vineyards”, lies the region of Strantza. There, on the south-eastern slopes of Mount Vermion, in an altitude of 250 meters above sea level and in the very heart of the “P.D.O. Naoussa,” you will find the vineyards and the winery of Estate Chrisohoou [pronunciation: khree-soh-KHO-oo] – who produce their wines with utmost care and passionate love.

The winery is not only a place of wine production, but constitutes an interesting place to visit for those who wish to reveal the secrets of winemaking. The visitor has the opportunity to visit the spaces of wine production and bottling, the cellar, the museum with collection of various viticulture and enological objects and the special tasting rooms.

The tradition and the desire of parents continue with their two of three children: Nana who graduated from Accounting in Greece and Faculty of Viticulture and Enology in Italy, and John who works in various departments of property.

In the Estate’s private vineyards various white and red varieties are cultivated. The most renowned is XINOMAVRO NAOUSSA which in 1971 was recognized as red V.Q.P.R.D. (Vin de Qualité Produit Dans Une Région Déterminée – Wines of Quality Produced in Determined Regions). From this red variety the company also produces a white wine with the method of “Blanc de Noir” (white wine from red). Other varieties include the famous French Merlot, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc, and the old but little known local white grape PRIKNADI from which the famous PREKNIARIKO is produced.

The Estate Chrisohoou produces white, red and rose wines.

The Wines

chrisohoou-naoussa

Naoussa 2013

Dry Red Wine
PDO Naoussa

A very interesting approach to the Xinomavro of Naoussa, with distinct influences from Northern Italy, probably due to winemaker Nana Chrisohoou’s time there before re-joining the family winery in 2004. Its nose is typical, with clear notes of tomato paste, black olive and dried plums, yet the palate is balanced and elegant, with excellent length. An great red wine to pair with lamb stew, game dishes and mature cheese.

chrisohoou-preknariko

Prekniariko 2015

Dry White Wine
PGI Imathia

This is an excellent expression of Naoussa’s almost extinct white grape, made by the family that saved it and made it known. Notes of caramelised citrus fruits and dried flowers are made spicier because of the 6-month oak treatment; still, its acidity is crisp, while its aftertaste reminds of salty roast nuts. A challenge even for experts in food and wine pairing; it seems to love ethic Asian cuisine, mushrooms and the touch of saffron on white meat.
