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.

Well hello there my friend! Cool 100 % Assyrtiko from the Kioutsoukis family @kamarawinery. Made as a proper Retsina wine, organic and biodynamic.

____
An orange wine with pine resin added to the must during fermentation, that also gives it it's special taste. 
____
Smells lovely of herbs and spices, intriguing and inviting, like thyme, ginger and lavender that you will also find on the palate. The acidity is there together with the fruit and the herbs. Maybe some kumquat and small citrusfruits as well. Oh, and of course resin! 🙈🤣
____
Not an everyday wine, but a cool glass when you're tired of the everyday go-to's.

A private wine tour -odyssey, came to its end (unfortunately).. we started off at the amazing @oinovate.wine.stories and next day we visited Thessaly. 1st was @christoszafeirakis with his delicious wines and then the master of natural wine  @kontozisis_wines. Next day found us at Pelion and our good friend @patistiswines. Then back to Thessaloniki to visit @kamarawinery and @aslanis_family_winery! It was such an amazing experience. Many thanks to all these beautiful people! See you all soon.  #greekwine #winetours #thessaly #greece #thessaloniki #naturalwines #greekfood #organicwines #oenosophywinetours #🧡🧡🧡#Repost @laflippe

Precis så här känns det! Så glad att jag vågade och så stolt över resultatet 😁 Idag var det "skolavslutning" för Sommelierskans Söndagsskola för den här terminen, och vilken eftermiddag vi fick ❤ Jag lägger ner otroligt mycket tid och energi på mina provningar, och det är värt varenda minut och allt slit och släp. Tack alla ni som kommer, det är ni som gör det! 🙏
Nu tar jag ett välförtjänt sommarlov men den 18 augusti drar vi igång igen med buller och bång. Om du vill säkra din plats på en (eller flera) provning i höst är det hög tid att anmäla dig nu! GLAD SOMMAR alla 🌞⛱😁🥂💕 #sommelierskanssöndagsskola #sommelierskansobsklass #vinprovning #kulpåjobbet #sommlife #smakkombinationer #handpickedsweden #kvalitetsviner #bioviner #vinoepane #birgitbraunstein #kamarawinery #carlindepaolo #mouchao #picpoul #alicantebouchet #lakritsroten#Repost @nichevine
