Kir-yianni

The KIR-YIANNI company was founded in 1997 by Yiannis Boutaris. Based in Naoussa and Amyndeon, on both sides of mount Vermion in Northwestern Greece. At the time Yiannis Boutaris was one of the leading figures in the Greek wine industry, when he left the Boutari Wine Group, the premium family wine company that his grandfather established in 1879. Today, the Kir-Yianni team, under the direction of Stellios Boutaris, son of Yiannis builds on the core pillars of the company's philosophy: innovation, respect to tradition and specialized knowledge on wine, from the vineyard to the final consumer.

The activities of the Kir-Yianni Estate are entirely based on the principles of integrated farming.This practice was applied for the first time in 2004, with a certification by the Organization of certification and Supervision of Agricultural Products AGROCERT, and is still used today. The main aim is always the creation of wines of a special character: Rich but refined aromas, acidity to provide zest and ageing potential, perfect balance in the mouth and ease of combination with various dishes .
