Santa Irene Winery
SANTA IRENE WINERY
Santa Irene winery manages over 20 hectacres of vineyards, perched high up on slopes at altitudes of up to 1350m, where the local Black “Mavro Ambelisimo” variety dominates and Local Xynisteri is found in smaller plots. The vines have aged well over 150 years, and adapted well to the rocky, mountainous Farmakas “terroir” (soil, climate and terrain). This unique combination of aged vines at high altitudes on soil, rich in minerals, sunlight, natural rain, together with traditional winemaking and vineyard growing techniques result in quality wines of distinctive character and complexity.
