In 2015, Vasiliki Akriotou, an oenologist who has been working in a winery of Central Greece since 1997, decides to create her first line of wines, wanting to capture in them both her experience from the long-term observation of the vineyard of Central Greece and her view on her favorite grape varieties.

Thus emerges “Orivatis” (climbers in english), a series of wines whose name wants to “declare” the difficult path that one must follow to produce a high level of wine.



The Orivatis (the mountaineer) series tries first of all to highlight the potential of the native Savatiano grape variety, which is the most widely planted variety in Central Greece and with the right cultivation (old vines, low yields per hectare, arid vineyards) can produce very special wines.

On the other hand, with the rose & Red versions of Orivatis, Vasiliki provides her own version of her favorite international varieties adapted to the microclimate of the region.

The Erimitis (Hermit) series, coming from a 5,5-hectare vineyard in the center of Evia Island, Is blending native grape varieties that exist In the vineyard in small batches and trying to express the mountainous along with the Islanding character of the vineyard.


At the foot of Mount Kitheronas, in the historic Plataea of ​​Viotia and at an altitude of 280 to 380m., is the privately owned family vineyard (4,5 hectares) as well as the cooperating vineyards, which are supervised by Vasiliki Akriotou.

The other part of the vineyards (5,5 hectares) is In the Island of Evia at an altitude of 230 to 280m at the foot of Mount Dirfis.

Both areas characterized by cold and wet winters and cool summers.

The Greek varieties Savatiano, Assyrtiko, Aidani, Mandilaria, Liatiko, Vradiano and Malagouzia are cultivated here along with the French, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. Pinot Noir comes from a cooperating vineyard in the mountainous Aegialia at an altitude of 700 m.

The vineyards of Savatiano with an age of 40 to 60 years are planted in the traditional way of planting (Cups or bush vines). Their low yield of 4000 to 6000 Kg / Ha is evident in the final product.

The rest of the vineyards are younger with an age of 25 to 12 years and their acreage yields range between 10000 to 12000Kg / Ha.


At the beginning of 2017, the small winery of Akriotou Wines was created in an old warehouse on the edge of Plataea.

The small interior of the winery houses small stainless steel tanks which ensure quality micro-wines per variety.

At the beginning of 2018, the visitable part of the winery started and is in progress, as well as the final configuration of all the outdoor areas, so that future visitors can enjoy not only the delicious tastings of the wines but also the wonderful view of the historical sites of the area.
