2014, the most difficult vintage that we have ever seen!

The 2014 vintage put our abilities, as well as the strength of our vines to the test, having as main features an unprecedented hail storm that occurred on July 22 in Naoussa and heavy rains in early September. The fact that we were able to make wines with typicity, a beautiful aromatic character, refreshing acidity and soft body, can only fill us with satisfaction.

Paranga 2013

When the old winery in the village of Agios Panteleimon was bought, my father, who has the habit to nickname everything, called it “Paranga”, which is the Greek word for “Shack”. The idea was that the first wine produced in this winery would be a blend of the basic red varieties grown in Macedonia: Xinomavro, Syrah and Merlot. In the beginning, the wine had been designed as an oaky version of these varieties from the area of Amyndeon. It developed into the fresh red wine of Kir-Yianni. As for the name, my father, with his self-sarcastic humor, wanted to name the wine “Château Paranga”. My contribution was to remove the word Château. The rest is history.
