Domaine Foivos

Foivos winery is the historical continuation of the Mantzavino Winery, which starred in the past two centuries in the world of wine, and made Greek wine known internationally. It is one of the oldest operating winery in Greece and has already produced, since last century, some of the best Greek wines that became known worldwide. Since 1999, a new dynamic effort has begun, severely restricting production quantities, and mainly making exclusively use of the excellent indigenous and autochthonous own-rooted varieties of the Kefalonian vineyard, and of the ideal microclimate of Kefalonia.

In the Domaine Foivos vineyards are cultivated with very mild methods and biodynamic approaches, rare clones of ancient grape varieties such as Mavrodaphne, Muscat, Muscatel, Tsaousi, Vostilidi, Thiako, Araklino. At the same time, the winery manages vineyards in the eastern part of the island, in the region of Omala, for the production of the well-known local variety Robola of Cephalonia. 

A special feature of Foivos winery is the aging of wines under water: Since 2016 the winery started experimental searches of the maturing of wine under water, by immersing bottles for aging in the sea. At the same time, it applies another one innovative method of aging and maturing wines, by submerging bottles under fresh water, in special tanks of the winery, allowing the wine to mature and complete under absolute conditions of constant temperature, darkness and absence of oxygen!
