The wines of Thymiopoulos

Xinomavro specialists from Naoussa, Greece

Although the Thymiopoulos family has farmed vine in Naoussa for several generations, it was only as recently as 2004 when they released the first wines under their name. This is when Apostolos Thymiopoulos returned after studying viticulture and enology at the University of Athens. He's doing great things with the local Xinomavro grape variety.
