Karanika Winery schematic

The winery

The Karanika winery is a three-storey, gravity-flow building situated between the villages of Amyndeo, Vegora and Levea, on a slope at the shores of lake Vegoritis.

The exclusive design of the building allows the wines to be made without the disastrous effects of pumps and filters.

The winery - part two

On the top floor under the narrow tile roof, the grapes are collected, selected and destemmed. By gravity flow the grapes slide to the middle floor where the red wines are fermented in both oak and stainless steel tanks of 40hl. At this level the white grapes and the grapes for blanc de noirs are pressed in a traditional basket press.

Right underneath this floor are the ageing cellars and the bottling units. The rest of this bottom floor is reserved for the production of rose and white wines and our sparkling wines.
