“an evolving tradition in winemaking excellence”

Founded in 1979, with deep roots in time-honored winemaking traditions and eyes on the future, the Semeli Estate produces wines of exceptional quality offering consumers best value for money.

Semeli Estate ranks among the country’s most advanced
and significant wine-related developments

 

… in the heart of a unique Greek terroir

Our privately-owned hillside vineyards span 32 acres, while another 100 acres are grown by affiliated local winegrowers.

This allows for continuous quality control throughout the growing season – an absolute must for consistently producing great wines.

Our state-of-the-art 4,200m² facility in the Nemea winemaking country, which can produce up to two million bottles annually, is a benchmark winery at a national level both in terms of innovative layout and excellent services.

Designed with respect for the natural environment and built on a vineyard covered hillslope with a long reputation of producing vintage grapes, the Semeli winery reflects our holistic approach to modern winemaking.

The Semeli-owned vineyards and those grown by affiliated winegrowers span more than 250 acres in the PDO areas of Nemea and Mantinia, as well as in other parts of the Peloponnese.

To ensure the best grape quality possible, the Semeli-owned vineyards are currently in the process of transitioning from conventional to organic cultivation.

In the next five years Semeli Estate plans to double its company-owned acres and develop ideal terroirs for the cultivation of well-known Greek and international varieties, as well as rare indigenous ones, which will produce unique single vineyard/single cru wines of exceptional quality.

The heart of wine beats in the heart of Crete

Rethymno is celebrating the award of European Wine City 2018!

Great news for wine-lovers! Rethymno is celebrating the award of European Wine City 2018 by RECEVIN European Network, opening thus a new page for wine experience and wine-tourism.

Wine has always been a very important part of the daily life and the culture of Cretan people. It is the signature and seal of friendship in social gatherings and an indispensable element in the famous Cretan diet. It is also a symbol of composition, continuity, coexistence and harmony in our relation with the earth, the natural environment and other people.

The fertile soil, the sun and many years of experience, have made Cretans know how to produce wine artfully. The local producers, based on the high quality of the indigenous varieties, such as the white-Rethymnian Vidiano and the red Liatiko, among 11 other original Cretan varieties, and by combining the tradition with the modern know-how, continue to produce an excellent raw material.

This year’s Cretan Diet Festival (1-7 July 2018), was oriented towards wine and its important role in gastronomy: wine-tastings, wine-pairings with the famous Cretan cheese and other Cretan products, seminars and wine classes, recipes based on wine, finger food pairing, back to back tastings, special restaurant menus, and many other special events have been planned, in order to make locals and visitors have an exquisite wine experience, full of music and fun!

Apart from the Cretan Diet Festival, many cultural and culinary actions are planned, both for professionals and the public, throughout the year: you can follow a wine-route, visit a winemaker, taste special cocktails based on wine and served in the best bars of the city, attend art events and exhibitions inspired by wine’s journey throughout the centuries and explore the enchanting process of wine-making through seminars, workshops and conferences.

Certainly Rethymno is not only a vacation place to come and visit but a safe destination full of cultural and nature experiences, with its clean sea and its unspoiled environment. The beautiful landscape, the vibrant small villages, the hospitality and the numerous options for filling the agenda of your visit, make the city the ideal all-season destination.

And this year, Rethymno will be the meeting point for both, foodies and wine-lovers! Don’t miss the chance to be part of the celebration!

Boutari Winery in Skalani

The Boutari Winery in Crete is built outside Skalani village, on the Fantaxometocho Estate, at 8 km kilometers from the centre of Heraklion city. This winery is really the gem of the viticultural zone of Archanes.

Fantaxometocho Estate or otherwise called “the settlement of the ghosts” (this second name explains the meaning of the word fantaxometocho) owes its name to the efforts made by the former owner to save the estate from the pirates’ raids by spreading the rumor that the estate was filled with ghosts.

Skalani Estate produces annually 100,000 bottles of wines and 4 wines with “Skalani” wine taking the lion’s share of the wine production. “Skalani” is a PGI red wine (Protected Geographical Indication), a blend of Kotsifali (50%) & Syrah (50%) varieties.

Estate Argyros Winery

The Estate Argyros Winery was established by Georgios Argyros in 1903. At that time his ambition was to expand his vineyard to 2 hectares and that is why he created the winery. In 1950 the winery passed to his son Mattheos, who extended it to 6 hectares. In 1974 it was taken over by Yannis Argyros who expanded the area of the vineyard to 26 hectares, modernized the winery (“Estate Argyros”) and worked hard to insure quality.

The Argyros Vinsanto of 1987 was rated the best Vinsanto created on Santorini, while in 2005 and 2006 the winery was placed in the top 100 wineries in the world, according to the respected magazine Wine and Spirits.
