Don't forget these...


Thomas Ligas studied oenology in France and settled in this land of very old wine-growing tradition that is that of Pella. He has devoted himself from the start to organic and biodynamic viticulture since the 80s.

Today the Ligas family, Thomas, Jason and Meli, work hard to find that perfect balance between quality and quantity, although the former always takes precedent. They see their approach as being more than just organic and only use indigenous Greek grape varieties, some of which had nearly been forgotten.
