Samartzis Estate is a family owned vineyard and winery, located at the southern slopes of Helicon mountain and between two villages Askre (Muses Valley) & Vagia that are 62 kilometers South East of the Delphi oracle.
The vineyards of our Estate are cultivated according to the use of a total management system that is aiming to sustain a balance between controlled low yields and the sustainability of the vines.
Our philosophy is to the produce high quality, single vineyard, single grape variety and unique "terroir" wines in our Estate.
