Visits

Ktima Gerovassiliou is open to all wine lovers and anyone wishing to get to know the world of wine and viticulture. Visits comprise a short walk around the vineyard, a tour in the wine-production, bottling and ageing areas, and the Wine Museum. Visitors can taste the Ktima's wines in the special wine-tasting rooms, while enjoying a spectacular view to the Ktima's vineyard.

Useful information

 

Ktima Gerovassiliou is a founding member of the "Wines of North Greece" and actively participates in the events organized by the Wine Roads of Northern Greece, an innovative program of touristic and cultural interest that resulted from the joint efforts of wine producers of Northern Greece.

 

Activities

The various activities that are realized in the Ktima and the Wine Museum are encompassed in the same perception of wine and its significance as a cultural process: tours and tastings, educational programs, special events for children, meetings and lectures on wine and art, theatre, music and dance performances.

Ktima Gerovassiliou sponsors and realizes publications, regarding vine and wine. It sponsored the four-language publication of a book written by the oenologist Stavroula Kourakou-Dragona, "Krater Mestos Euphrosynes" (A crater full of joy), and the new book of the professor Theocharis Pazaras "Excavations in the region of Epanomi, Thessaloniki: The Cemetery in Limori and the Basilica in Bgiadoudi". Two more books add to the publication activities of the Domaine "The blooming vine" (Minutes of a scientific conference that was held at Domaine Gerovassiliou) and "Oinos efrainei kardian" (The wine pleases the heart) by Vassilis Gougousis.

Among the estate's publications a fairytale. The wish to enrich the experience of school visits was fulfilled thanks to the sensitivity and willingness to contribute of the musician and writer Dimitris Baslam. This is how "Agisilagos' Must Cookies" were "baked". Dimitris Baslam describes in an imaginative way the wine's journey from the vineyard to the bottle through the narration of the adventures of a hare and his friends. The story becomes alive with the help of the beautiful illustrations of Victor Moschopoulos.

Finally, on the occasion of “Open Cellars 2012”, Ktima Gerovassiliou began a small series of publications, “By word of mouth”, relating to Epanomi, the land that hosts the estate. Three publications, during the last three years, dedicated to the local gastronomy (“Epanomi’s Cooking”, May 2012), the vines (“Ampelotrapezomata”, May 2013) and to Epamoni’s tsipouro (“Tsipouro narrates”, May 2014).
