The Thimiopoulos family has owned vineyards in Naoussa for several generations. Until recently, the family grew grapes and supplied wineries with their fruit. Upon matriculation from The University of Athens oenology program, Apostolos Thimiopoulos returned to his family’s vineyards and began producing wine for his own label, Thimiopoulos Vineyards and the wine was called Ghi kai Uranos (Earth & Sky). The winery’s first release was with the 2004 vintage, which was a hit across Greece and in Europe. Ghi kai Uranos also caught the attention of influential wine writers such as Nico Manessis and the UK’s Tom Stevenson. As the winery’s capacity grows, the amount of wine available to us will increase as well. Uranos (the US name), is similar in style to a modern Barolo-powerful and concentrated ripe fruit aromas with balanced acidity and tannins. The beauty of this wine comes from the fact that Apostolos was able to coax out Xinomavro’s better qualities without high levels of acidity and tannin, making it a wine that can be drunk now as well as cellared for at least 10-15 years. Thimiopoulos Vineyards will be a winery to watch as its production grows.
