Harvest moon at Ktima Gerovassiliou
Ktima Gerovassiliou says farewell to summer and welcomes the new viti-vinicultural year with a documentary screening of Kostas Spiropoulos, “Arcadia 1900, Champagne D’ Orient” on Saturday, September 10, 2022, at 8.30pm, at the estate’s garden.
Few words about the movie
Papanikolaou Brothers Winery: the patriarch father, the visionary son Vassilis, the adventurer brother Nikos, and a mother as strict as Cerberus. Producing Arcadian sparkling wines since 1885, they dream to transform the region into the Champagne of the East. Their wines are awarded with gold medals in all the important wine competitions of the time, from 1889 to 1934. The family’s inner conflicts, their competitors and the pressure of politicians and banks will lead the visionary winemaker Vasilios Papanikolaou -who had already presented his secret recipe at an international conference: winemaking with indigenous yeasts without the use of sulphites- to a tragic end. A story about wine and greed.
