Our passion

What happens when an entire family is passionate for nature? They abandon city life and move to countryside. This is the story of Kioutsoukis family (Dimitrios, Eleftheria and their children). Dimitrios Kioutsoukis  with his family assistance and inspiration planted 11 hectars of vines (mainly Greek grape varieties: Assyrtiko, Malagousia, Roditis, Xinomavro) in northern Greece near Thessaloniki, an area well known from ancient times for its wines. 

Dimitrios (chemical engineer- UC Davis winemaking) and his daughter Stavroula ( agronomist- oenologist) carrying on the family tradition and passionate about permaculture principles use more than organic  methods in viticulture and winemaking. Their main goal is to give birth to wines versatile, unique that express both their philosophy and the terroir.

Seeking the real taste of  life they created the Kamara pure wines, low intervention wines (natural wines).

All Kamara pure wines are naturally fermented with indigenous yeasts , have no oenological substances added and they are bottled without filtration and no added sulfites

Let the nature be the winemaker

"Let the nature do the fertilization"   

 Does this method makes winemaking easier, or harder in the long run?

  In the first years, we have a lot of hard work to do, because human in general has destroyed the nature up to a point. The use and abuse of fertillisations, pesticides, fungicides are only some of the factors having led to this destruction as well as to a subsequent weakening of nature’s power. For generations, the majority of farmers and agronomists thought of nature as flawed, as something that really needed his intervention. So, in order to undo the negative results of those bad practices which have been going on for so many generations, hard work need to be done. We have the vineyard checked every 2 days for diseases; most of the work in the vineyard is done manually, so that we do not bother the wildlife as much as we can.

    Regarding the vinification, we could not say that the work is easier or harder. What we can certainly say is that work is more risky. We should throw away the grapes that are not 100% healthy and good and  as a consequence the production is much less than in a conventional vineyard. In the winery, the work continues with controling the wines or the fermenting musts every day. We taste the wines in order to see if there is any fault, we control the temperatures of the tanks, we check the wines in our laboratory-analysis of volatile acidity, analysis of biomass( to see the population of the yeasts ) etc.

    In the long run, to be honest, I could not say for sure whether the work will be harder or easier; for the moment we have to face a lot of difficulties, but I think –and hope!- that in the future the situation will become more stable and thus a bit easier. Right now, only one thing is beyond every doubt: that the winemaking of this type will continue to intrigue me no matter how hard it is.

Πρώτη στάση...Καμάρα...Κτήμα Κιουτσούκη...🍷🍷🍷veganzone_wb

Everything about Kamara winery is exceptional. Their stately hospitality still lingers for me like a fine wine. My son and I were welcomed at the family's place of business back in early December in the beautiful countryside of Thessaloniki. We arrived as visitors and left as friends.  Chatting, touring, tasting and eating together for several hours created one of my most cherished experiences in Greece. One post is not enough to share the richness of human connection found only beyond these pages where love, knowledge, mastery, commitment, creativity, compassion, and laughter guide real time conversations. Says Dimitrios of their delicious cloudy wines, "All our wines are vegan.We don t use any animal products for fining. Our Kamara pure wines are completely natural. We don't use any additives for our wines, only juice fermented." Their wine is sold around the world, but to taste it first at the winery with the beautiful people who make it is as good as life gets. Thank you @kosmos_sol for arranging this visit. .

Like flared jeans, station wagons, beards and vinyl, retsina will once more have its day in the sun. It’ll be ice cold and the sun will be hot, and Kamara Estate will lead the charge. @dnswines #retsina #greekwine #naturalwine#Repost @frokennirvin
