At the beginning, we only had the will, the love and a small vineyard.
In 2006, and possessing an eco-friendly attitude, we first started cultivating our vineyards, deploying systems of integrated management systems and organic farming. In 2009, the first privately owned winery is established, which possess the features of a sole proprietorship business, with main activity the production of wine. Our goal is to create high and fine quality wines, acquiring all the assets of the microclimate of the region.
The winery and vineyard DOMAINE LIAKOU are located on 470m. height. Our winery makes the best possible use of the grapes growing in bοth the vineyards of the Domaine and those belonging to our associate agriculturalists in the Meteora region, and which are located no further than 3 km from our winery, in order to ensure in this way, fast and direct delivery of the grapes to our Domaine. The cooling of the grapes takes place in a separate freezing room, and it lasts no less than 24 hours. This way, all its beneficial organic features are preserved and not “lost” in the winemaking process. And taking advantage of the gravity generated, “crushing” transpires at an altitude of four meters. Vinification occurs in specially designed “pressing” fermentation tanks, in controlled cooling temperatures. Following “crushing”, the wine is transferred into cellars for aging, and it is placed in French oak barrels- specially selected to accommodate each variety accordingly.

What We Do
Our Wine Making Traditions
After the fermentation the wine is driven to the underground cellars for aging, and is placed in French oak barrels, selected for the proper vinification of each variety. Depending on the desired result, the maturing time is selected as a function of the barrel youth and the density of the wine. This time ranges from 12 to 24 months. In the end, it is important not to overcome wood scents against fruity aroma and taste of wine
You will find splendidly aged wines at our winery.
