The Alpha Estate was created in 1997 by Makis Mavridis, a viticulturalist with a family tradition in winemaking, and Angellos Iatridis, an experienced chemist-oenologist, in the form of a single private vineyard with 6,900 acres of land. The company's aim is the production and the promotion of wines that represent the ecosystem (terroir) of the region, namely the distinct soil and climatic conditions of Amyntaio.
The philosophy of Alpha Estate combines a respect for the natural environment with tradition and innovation. To this end, the company continues to invest in research programs, and owns sophisticated winemaking equipment, large bottling plants and fully automated systems. The management of the winery is simplified by the implementation and operation of an integrated management system (building management system) at both a wine-growing process level, but also at an engineering and engineering function level, even remotely, through a number of installed modems.
The wines of Alpha Estate mature under optimum conditions in wooden barrels situated at the underground cellar. The Xinomavro red dry wine of the Amyntaio OPAP category is still very popular.
Alpha Estate’s vineyard is located at Ambelia, in the region of Vegora, within the wine-growing zone of Amyntaio, at an altitude of 620-710 meters. The selection and investment on that particular vineyard site was based on lengthy observations, surveys and vinification studies that solely relate to the evaluation of the vine potential of the sub-regions of the estate. The winery is located in the heart of the vineyard, and operates on the basis of full respect to the ecosystem, the wine producer and the wine lover.
At the Alpha Estate premises, the visitor can see the underground cellars and taste the products in the tasting room. In Alpha Estates there is also space for thematic presentations and a shop selling wines, books and small items related to wine.
