Ktima Brintziki

The Brintziki Estate is a producer of indigenous, rare varietals and is considered Greece’s first "green" winery. Located in the Peloponnese near Ancient Olympia, the family-owned property is organic and completely carbon-neutral through the use of renewable solar and geothermal energy. They grow indigenous varietals – some, like the Tinaktorogos, old enough to be referenced by Homer – and use natural yeast for most of their wines. Their 15 hectare, clay-soil property sits 300 m above sea level near the river Enipeas. Husband and wife team, Dionysios and Dionysia, were originally professional musicians and took over the family winemaking business in 1994. The family showcases wines that are beautiful, authentic demonstrations of the diversity that Greece has to offer. The Brintzikis also play an important role in their community by providing a local gathering place for the Arts. The amphitheater on their property is offered to the community to host plays and concerts.
