Olympia Land Estate

Olympia Land Estate is located in Ancient Olympia, but very close to Pyrgos (20 km), the capital of the prefecture Ilia, and also in Katakolon (32 km) the commercial and tourist port of the country. In the place where our ancestors 150 years ago began the cultivation of raisins and olive trees. Nowdays Olympia Land  Estate is a family winery that began to produce small quantities of quality wines in the early 2000, and since 2008 creates the modern winery of the estate. Following the family’s tradition at the blessed and sacred place of Olympia, the birthplace of civilization and Olympic Games. Once upon a time the ancient Greek people of Olympia made wines and organised symposiums, today the wine production of the estate is inspired at that time’s mores and traditions. What makes the vines’ cultivation so special, is mostly the unique microclimate and teroir of the valley, which keeps away extreme weather conditions. That matter makes the quallity of the production stable. Vineyard is planted with the local white varieties of Asyrtiko (Asserteko), Malagouzia (Malayousia) ,the noble red variety of Agiorgitiko (Ayioryeteko) and Avgoustiatis (Avyousteates), the French variety of Chardonnay Blanc as well as the foreign varieties Merlot and Syrah. The Liarommatis family get used to make wine with the traditional way, such as pressing the grapes with the feet. It was like a festival because all the relatives arrived there to assist the family with the harvesting and with all the proccess of the wine-making. Imagine all the women of the family into the big stoned winepress to “dance” on the grapes until gathering all the must (juice) in the wooden barrels. The taste and flavors of our wines originates by the family’s loyalty on the ancestors’ secret for the vines’ cultivation.
