On 6th April 2012, Le Monde Institute organized an excursion to the “Oenotria Gi- Costars Lizards” Domaine in Kapandriti for students attending the “ Chef Course”.
The visit was organized in connection to the “ oenology” module that students follow and they were accompanied by professor and oenologist Mrs. Carvel E.
Located on the shores of lake Marathon, “Oenotria Gi” cultivates approximately 20 hectares of vineyards. The varieties are: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Agiorgitiko. Red wines only that are cultivated organically with low yield.
The soil and the low temperatures, due to the altitude, create an ideal climate for the ripening of the grapes. The winery that our students had the chance to visit is of a fairly small producing capacity but the equipment that is used, helps produce wines of a superior quality.
We would like to thank everyone for their hospitality and guided tour.
