Our goal at Kolonaki Group is to continuously expand our product offering and team up with artisan producers that help shape our experiences each and every day. Toady’s news comes from Greece’s highest mountain top vineyards in Metsovo. There you will find a mid-sized traditional winery on the outside but a premium class winery and wine making team on the inside. Please take a few minutes to read about the winery and its history.
The Winery Philosophy: “This labour of love started out as a hobby but grew into an expansive vision. If you know what it feels like to have achieved a seemingly unattainable vision, you will appreciate what this means: It makes the soul expand.” Evangelos Averoff-Tossizza “With Reason and Dream”
The Vineyard: Steeply sloping vineyards perched on the slopes of the Pindus mountain range, battling with wild boars, bears and extreme weather conditions; people who persevere to obtain the best grape possible: This is where our vines grow.The Yiniets vineyards are Greece’s highest (950–1050m above sea level). On the slopes of Mount Pindus the seasons unfold at their own pace, and the vines take their time ripening. Yiniets (the Vlach word for vineyard) is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Traminer, Syrah, as well as the region’s lesser-known indigenous varieties, such as Vlachiko, Gudaba and Pyknoassa.
