The Manolesakis family is engaged in the viticulture and the winemaking since 1989, a crucial period that coincides with the revival of the Adriani vineyard by planting cosmopolitan French varieties (Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Syrah).

George Manolesakis is amongst the first if not the very first people who revived the viticulture in this historic area with and the precious help of his dear son Stavros Manolesakis, they are personally taking care of the cultivation of the vines as well as of the production of the Estate’s wines, while keeping in mind to respect of what mother Nature dictates, along with the optimization of the wine production process and so the vines can deliver characteristic microclimate (terroir) region, which is the primary goal of this effort.

In 1998 the winery installations of the Estate were completed, with a sophisticated & state of the art unit of 1500 sq.m, located in the heart of the Estate’s 200 acres vineyard at the slopes of Adriani village, just a few kilometres off the town of Drama.

In 2004, the constant research & pioneering spirit of the Estate owners led to the planting & cultivation of Greek indigenous varieties such as Malagouzia, Muscat of Alexandria, Assyrtiko and Agiorgitiko, in 2008 the native varieties of Moschomavro, Limnio and Pinot noir were planted as well.

The main goal of the people of the Estate is the production of high quality wines exclusively from the privately owned vineyards in order to highlight the particularities of each variety – always in perfect harmony with the microclimate and soil of the vineyards – the typical characteristics of the terroir of the region.
