Tasting notes - The distinctive and characteristic aromas of apricot and honey from the Semillon blend perfectly with the citrus and lemon notes from the Assyrtiko, with nuances of vanilla and nutty hints adding complexity. Elegant, with a creamy texture, this stylish wine is beautifully balanced by refreshing palate which leads to a long finish.


Ktima Biblia Chora is the innovative creation of Vassilis Tsaktsarlis and Vangelis

Gerovassiliou two of the most talented winemakers in Greece. The winery was

established in 1998 and the privately owned vineyard lies on the cool climate slopes

of Mount Pangeon, at Kokkinochori near Kavala. It has been farmed organically

since day one. These exceptional, cutting edge wines are some of the best white

wines in Greece, which have similarities to very good white Bordeaux – not surprising

as Vassilis Tsaktsarlis studied with Denis Dubourdieu; the king of modern white



Located in the coastal region of Pangeon, Biblia Chora’s privately owned estate

vineyard is situated at 380 metres altitude and extends over 78 hectares. With the

striking Pangeon Mountain as the backdrop and the sea breeze coming from the

Aegean Sea in front the estate, the vines thrive in this mild, Mediterranean climate

which is characterised by mild winters and cool summers. The wide diurnal

temperature range encourages a long, slow maturation of the grapes,

concentrating the flavours in the berries. The vineyard is cultivated according to strict

ecological agricultural standards in order to respect the environment and local flora

and fauna. The vines are planted at a density of 4,000 plants per hectare and all the

work in the vineyard, such as leaf thinning and the harvest is carried out by hand.

The soil is rocky and infertile, with limestone and clay and good levels of drainage.


The Assyrtiko (pronounced Ah-SEER-tee-koe) and Semillon grapes were picked at

optimum maturity and then carefully selected. The wine was vinified in the state-ofthe-art winery, using modern techniques to ensure the aromatics and varietal

flavours were retained. Each variety was vinified separately in 225 litre French oak

barrels, of which 50% were new and 50% were one year old. Maturation lasted for

five months, with bâtonnage taking place in the barrel.
