History of the Winery

1992 is a milestone year for the dentist Spyros Markatselis, as not only is it the year his second son comes to life, but he also takes the big decision to fulfill his student dream: To produce his own wine from his own vineyards. So, without wasting any more precious time, he decides to replant the already existing but aged vineyard of his grandfather with 40 new vineyards. Until 1998, the vineyard grows continuously. At the urging of friends and acquaintances, the producer is convinced to move on to the next stage: bottling and marketing of the wine that he had been producing exclusively for himself and his friends.
In 2005, the first-born son, Michalis Markatselis begins his studies at the School of Oenology and Beverage Technology in Athens. On the occasion of this event, the idea of a winery with all the licenses and certifications needed to make the family’s wine known is born in the mind of Lena, Spiros’ wife. This will happen a year later, in 2006, when the Markatseli family will have the first winery license in Thesprotia (100 m2) and the first wine bottling license. The vineyard at that time was only 4 hectares and the wines produced did not exceed 3 tons. After a decade of uninterrupted effort and will, in 2016, the vineyard has now grown both in area and production. In addition to the original vineyard, two more vineyard plots of 20 and 6 hectares respectively are planted. The 30 hectares are located in the villages of Dafni and Finiki of Filiates, Thesprotia, near each other.
The second son, Alexandros Markatselis, having grown up influenced by wine and its production, studied Oenology and Viticulture at the Agricultural University of Florence in Italy. He returned to his hometown in 2020 full of knowledge and appetite to take the reins of the winery. In the near future, the goals of the Markatseli Winery are to create a new state-of-the-art model winery in the region of Thesprotia, highlighting the indigenous varieties that have been almost abandoned and continuing to produce quality wine with respect to the raw materials and the consumers.

Ο ΠΟΙΜΕΝΑΣ

ΠΛΗΡΟΦΟΡΙΕΣ

Ο παλαιωμένος ποιμένας έχει βαθύ γκρένα χρώμα με καφέ ανταύγειες. Στη μύτη κυριαρχούν πρωτογενή αρώματα μαύρων φρούτων, όπως κεράσι, βατόμουρο, πιπεριά καθώς επίσης βανίλια και αμύγδαλο λόγω του οξειδωτικού του χαρακτήρα. Στο στόμα είναι ξηρό με μέτρια οξύτητα, στρογγυλεμένες τανίνες, γεμάτο σώμα και χαρακτηριστικά από μαύρα φρούτα, πικάντικα μπαχαρικά, σοκολάτα, καπνός και δρυς.
Μέτρια επίγευση.

Ένα ρουστίκ κόκκινο κρασί “παλαιού” τύπου που συνοδεύει εξαιρετικά καπνιστά τυριά και καλό ψημένα κρέατα.
