Limnos Organic Wines began operations in 2002 with the purpose of producing limited, superior quality wine from organic grapes. It takes advantage of the reliable, rich soil and the dynamic selection of vineyards on the island of Limnos. The company was formed by oenologist Giannis Savvoglou with more than 20 years of experience in superior quality winemaking in Limnos and the Muscat of Alexandria grape, and Pantelis Tsivolas with his studies of business management and extensive experience in wine marketing. The company philosophy is to rely primarily on the charismatic grapes of Muscat of Alexandria, producing in an up to date winery, not only dry aromatic wines, but also a series of eclectic sweet wine, and other types of products with a limited number of bottle production.
The winery follows all the hygienic and quality rules and it is certified according to ELOT 1416/2000(HACCP) and ELOT ISO 9001/2000. The company owners I.Savvoglou - P.Tsivolas, having as main target the preservation of the environment and the health of both producers and consumers, from the very beginning are exclusively using organically grown grapes, which do not contain chemical fertilizers, pesticides, hormones and genetically modified organisms. Our vineyards are being supervised by an experienced agricultural engineer and oenologist and are controlled and certified by Certification and Inspection Organization of Organic Products (D.I.O.)
A few kilometers away from Myrina, in the area of Mavrabela, lies our ultra modern winery, where, respecting the tradition and utilizing of our scientific knowledge and our long-term experience in the wine sector, we produce wines of high quality, exclusively from grapes of organic cultivation, with the ambition that our products would become for some time an honorable representative of our island.
Our ultra modern winery-distillery, which is open to the public for visiting, is being inspected, controlled and certified by the Organic Products Inspection and Certification Organization, the DIO. This organization also inspects, controls and certifies the organic methods of cultivation of all the vineyards from which the raw material is derived and it provides the corresponding Products Certifications.
Our winery is open to the public on week days from 11am to 14pm and afternoons and on weekends by appointment. The visiting includes a touring in the winery area and a presentation of the wine production process and bottling. After the touring, in a pleasant and specially modified room, a process of tasting of our winery products as well as a presentation of audiovisual material follows.
(Very soon, we will be able to provide the visitors with a chance to visit and tour our currently under construction estate)
Savvoglou-Tsivolas producers exploit a total of around 20 hectares of vineyards (privately-owned or in co-operation with other wine growers), which are located in the regions of Agios Dimitrios, Kaspaka, Sardes, Dafni, Plaka and Kontopoulio. The cultivated varieties are mainly Muscat of Alexandria, Limnio, small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Fokiano.
The vineyards are regularly inspected and controlled by a scientist agriculturist and oenologist, as well as by the Organic Products Inspection and Certification Organization, DIO, that also inspects, controls and certifies the organic methods of cultivation and provides the corresponding Products Certifications. The privately-owned vineyard, located in the area of MAVRAMPELIA, near the winery, is being under restructuring. Our current planning includes the enrichment of the vineyard with other varieties (mainly Asyrtiko) in our under construction estate in the area of Rodania, which will be open to the pubic and, in the contexts of an agrotourism program, it will provide accommodation facilities as well.
