Papantonis Winery was established in 1993 by brother and sister Antony and Kallie Papantonis. Its aim is to produce an excellent red dry wine from the Agiorgitiko grapes and a white wine from the indigenous variety “Roditis” (65%) and Chardonnay grapes (35%). The Agiorgitiko is one of the oldest varieties, which has shown great stability through the years.
The winery is in the city of Argos, 15km away from the vineyard.
It is equipped with all the modern and up-to-date technology for red wine vinification, such as stainless steel fermentation tanks with controlled temperature, sheet filter with plates, pneumatic pressure, bottling line and a controlled temperature cellar with 60 oak barrels of 225lt. capacity each.
The oak barrels in which the wine matures come from France and are used for three periods only. They are handmade, from the oak forest of ALLIER, and medium smoked.
Finally, something should be said about the friendly atmosphere prevailing in the Papantonis Winery. The wine distribution is based on the belief that personal communication between client and producer guarantees the best control and the continual progress of the product, resulting in mutual satisfaction and fidelity.
