Wines & Spirits

Since 6,500 BC the Greeks have been fermenting grape juice to produce wine, "the nectar of the gods".

Navarino Vineyards are the destination’s organic vineyards and they are located in an area covering 55 hectares, extending over western hillsides 500m to 600m from the sea. These old vines grow in an area that has ideal climate –a main characteristic of this location- which due to its temperature variation between morning and night, the right elevation and level of humidity is fit for producing grapes distinguished for their excellence. 

In collaboration with acclaimed Greek vintners our vineyards are planted with a range of varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and some local favourites. To take full advantage of the area's favourable microclimate, we plan to add some "experimental" vineyards where new varieties will be tested.

Harvested by hand and gently pressed at our winery, our grapes produce red and white vintages that are later bottled and stored in the Costa Navarino cellars

The series of wines aptly named 1827, due to the historical naval battle of Navarino, comprises of a white wine combining Chardonnay with Roditis, and a red Cabernet Sauvignon. 

The Kotyle series –its name inspired by a clay-drinking cup known as King Nestor’s Cup- produces a white Chardonnay matured in a barrel for 4-5 months. 

Navarino Vineyards have also created their version of the traditional Greek spirit, tsipouro, which combines Ugni blanc and Roditis alepou.

For a complete oenological experience, Costa Navarino offers its guests the opportunity to become acquainted with the Messinian and Greek wine culture, through a series of seminars and participation in the traditional wine harvesting process, which has been a significant part of people’s lives for centuries.
