Karanika Estate is a new winery founded in Amyntaio by two Dutch nationals with a particular love for wine: the oenologist Laurens M. Hartman and his wife and viticulturist Anette van Kampen. It has seven vineyards in an area of approximately 400 acres, in the Amyntaio region. The company’s purpose is to enhance the quality of Greek wines, especially the local Xinomavro. The company’s philosophy dictates the natural treatment of the grape without the use of a pump and the production of clean, aromatic wines.
Most of the Karanika Estate vineyards produce Xinomavro for the last 15-20 years, while its vineyard at Agios Panteleimon is more than 80 years old. The company’s new winery is situated at an altitude of 650 meters near Lake Vegoritida and in between Amyntaio, Vegora and Lakki. The three-story building is the only winery in northern Greece which was built according to the law of gravity, so the wine is produced by natural means.
