Geraklis Voreas Line
Geraklis Voreas line consists of wines created from selected vineyards of our Gerakli estate, of an exclusively northern orientation. The line bears as its trademark a stylized version of Voreas, the North Wind God. It derives its name from the location Gerakli, Fthiotida, where the vineyards of Evampelos Ghi winery are located, and “Voreas”, the northern wind, which was worshipped as God in ancient Greece.
Geraklis Voreas series, thanks to the beneficial for the vineyard mezzo-climate created by the Northern wind, confirms the Evampelos Ghi΄s winery special terroir and its 20-year presence and experience in the wine making process.
The cold winds that descend from Mt. Othrys (the mountain of the Titans), along with the northern winds that invade from Thessaly, contribute to the creation of a unique, varietal Assyrtiko and a special Grenache Rouge which combine power with finesse.
