COMPANY DESCRIPTION: C. & D. Kalaitzis Co. is a family owned winery located in well renowned Petralona village, Chalkidiki/Greece operated by father and son, started as a hobby out of love for wine which was a favourite occupation of Christos Kalaitzis. Nowadays our wines come from our own vineyards (3 hectares) of certified ORGANIC cultivation. For white wine we have Sauvignon Blanc with a yield of 5000-6000 kgr/ hectare while the vineyard's location and excellent soil guarantee fine aromas and rich taste in your glass. Concerning red wines we have Merlot of exuberant flavour but also the domestic variety of Northern Greece, Xinomavro, which gives wines with high tanin content and full aftertaste. The yield for red wines is 6000-8000 kgr/hectare. Harvest is done by hand as a measure of additional quality control, while the low yield per hectare does not stress the vines and thus reducing the risk of disease and requiring less intervention. Aging of red wines is done in modern stainless steel tanks but also in French oak barrels.
Recently we also produced our first batch of extra virgin olive oil, from our own olive grove, of extra high quality which received a gold award in Olympia Nutrition Awards 2018.
