In Petrochori, Aitoloakarnania, an area with a stunning 200 – year winemaking tradition, is where Petrino Chorio winery and vineyards are located. In fact, even though most of our vineyards were established 20 years ago, after meticulous studying of the region and its terroir, several blocks are actually exactly where some of the old vines existed.
Following closely in the footsteps of our anchestors, we farm organically indigenous and international varieties to ensure, each year, grapes of the highest quality. In fact, it is in our philosophy that the quality and the attributes of a wine are “decided” in the vineyard.
In the winery, traditional techniques and modern technology and quality assurance systems are harmoniously combined. This results in a winemaking process that respects the unique character of each variety and vineyard block and highlights the best elements of each wine.
Malagousia, a charismatic, indigenous grape variety, originating from Aitoloakarnania, is the quintessence of the modern renaissance of Greek wines. In our vineyards, it grows ideally producing each year distinct wines, characterized by rose and citrus aromas, rich mouth feel and generous finish. Served chilled at 8-10°C, it is an ideal accompaniment to white Mediterranean cuisine.
