An imposing mountain is the physical boundary between Boeotia in the north and Attiki in the south. It is largely covered in pine trees at higher altitudes, while the vineyards are spread throughout the slopes at altitudes up to 500m above sea-level. The climate can be described as Mediterranean with continental influences. During the winter, heavy snow can cover the vineyards. There is a significant diurnal temperature range
during the growing season and this results in a slow, yet fullmaturation of the grapes. The soils are mostly clay loam and sandy loam and the best vineyards are located on well-drained gentle slopes, as good rainfall in the zone can is common.
The terroir of Kithaironas hosts a significant number of indigenous and international grape varieties. White-wine production is dominated by grapes such as Assyrtiko, Malagousia and Savatiano, to a lesser extent. The wines are upfront, fresh and harmonious with pleasant acidity levels. Red wines are mainly crafted from international grape varieties. Here the “stars” are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The wine styles range from fresh and fruity to rich, dense and cellar worthy.
