The Evampelos Ghi line, consisting of three white and two red wines, bears the company logo, which is the rosette of Melitaia (archaeological finding at the namesake location near Domokos). It draws its name from the location of the vineyard at Ambelia Gerakliou, as it has always been the area where the vines of the wider region of the Municipality of Domokos were cultivated.
