A dynamic historic winery with a pioneering wine tourism operation,
that seeks to combine the world of wine with art and hospitality.

katogi-averoff-logoKatogi Averoff Winery
A multi-dimensional wine theme park

Katogi Averoff came into operation in 1958, when Evangelos Averoff replanted the Metsovo vineyards; it is now in its sixth decade of a continuous presence in the Greek world of wine. Throughout these years it has been expanding its viticultural crops and has been producing many different kinds of wine to high quality specifications. At the same time, it complements its wine-producing activities with art events, while also developing wine tourism.

The premises of the Katogi Averoff Winery at Metsovo, which can be visited by the public, have taken on a new and ground-breaking form. A model wine tourism unit in Greece – the Katogi Averoff winery-hotel – is now a multi-dimensional wine theme park, which the visitor will find totally absorbing. By the use of various audio-visual media and the appropriate modifications in the cellars and production areas of the winery, a guided tour takes place within the framework of a variety of artistic interventions. It provides knowledge and gives rise to emotions in visitors, but, in parallel, allows scope to roam freely in the parts of the winery open to the public and for the visitor to experience in his/her own individual way the journey through the wonderful world of wine.

 

Katogi Averoff vineyards
Greece’s highest altitude vineyards

The Yiniets vineyards, in Metsovo, are Greece’s highest; clinging to the slopes of Mount Pindus in an area where the seasons have a rhythm of their own, the vines mature slowly. Yiniets, which means ‘vineyard’ in the local Vlach dialect, is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Traminer, Vlachiko and othe indigenous grape varieties.

The grapes are usually harvested in early to mid October; it’s as though Dionysus, the god of wine, wanted to keep these mountain vineyards in Epirus till last.

Katogi Averoff Hotel
An atmospheric hotel with a strong imprint of wine

The Katogi Averoff winery stands on the edge of the village of Metsovo, Greece. Just next to it, and with a view of the winery and the mountain slopes of the Pindus, we have built the four-star Katogi Averoff Hotel. Its exterior appearance is in keeping with the architectural forms of the region, while its interior decoration combines traditional and modern features, with works by contemporary Greek artists, with a view to creating an atmosphere, which is simple but aesthetically unique.

accommodation-katogi-averoff-2Inspired by the concept of wine, the Katogi Averoff Hotel has 15 rooms, divided into ‘white’ and ‘red’. Each room has its own individual name and style, which is connoted by the corresponding wine; the choice, naturally, is yours. You can relax in the ‘Floara di Munte’, rest in the ‘Moonlight Rosé’, and feel refreshed in the ‘Flogero’. In the hotel’s public rooms you can browse through books on wine from our collection, enjoy peace and quiet next to the open fire, amuse yourself with table-top games, and taste all our wines, accompanied by select local cheeses.

During your stay, apart from the seeing the places of interest in Metsovo and the surrounding region, you can visit our vineyards, get to know the methods by which wine is produced, take a tour of our winery, so that you too become fascinated by the wonderful world of wine.

At the Katogi Averoff hotel and winery you will enjoy the all-round wine experience.

The Wines

katogi_giniets

Rossiu di Munte Yiniets 2011

Dry Red Wine
PGI Metsovo

This is a historic red wine, as it’s made from the first ever planting of Cabernet Sauvignon in Greece, and, in particular, in one of the highest-altitude vineyards of the old world (1000m+). It features typical varietal aromas in the nose (dark fruits and sweet spices), while on the palate it’s full and long, with firm tannins and crisp acidity. Enjoy it with grilled or cooked red meat-based dishes and mature cheese.

katogi_naoussa

Xinomavro 2012

Dry Red Wine
PDO Naoussa

Intended for fanatic Xinomavro lovers, this is as typical an example from Greece’s ambassador zone as it gets. Fresh aromas of tomato and black olive embracing the fruit in the nose, while the palate is full and features a good tannic structure and perfect balance. This is a textbook Naoussa that will pair perfectly with beef and lamb stews and casseroles in rich tomato sauce.
