Domaine Gerovassiliou, Thessaloniki, Greece | BKWine Pick

Vineyard in Greece

You can go to the Greek peninsula of Halkidiki just to enjoy the fabulous nature but you can also to there to taste the fabulous wines of Evangelos Gerovassiliou on his estate, just 20 minutes away from the busy city of Thessaloniki. And after the city, this feels like paradise.

You will enjoy the view of the glittering blue sea and if you’re lucky you will see all the way to Mount Olympus, famous hang-out for the ancient gods.

Evangelos Gerovassiliou was one of the persons responsibly for the rebirth of the Greek wine some 25 years ago, when he was working as a winemaker at the Bordeaux inspired domaine Porto Carras.

Now he has his own vineyard and he makes wines from Greek grapes as well as from French and other more international varieties.

I am especially fond of his “Greek” wines, full of character and made with grapes like the white assyrtiko or the red limnio.

A favourite is the white Malagousia, a powerful and very tasty wine with aromas of lemon, honey, lavender and other fresh herbs and flowers.
