Tranabelo was started by Konstantinos Makridimitris on the island of Naxos and is based on a small collection of exceptional vineyards – Trana Abelia means strong vines. Naxos has a winemaking tradition stretching to antiquity and remains a very agricultural island, but there are few commercial wine producers on the island, with most wine being made for home consumption. Konstantinos wants to show the strength of the Naxos terroir, using the indigenous, primarily white, varieties found on the island, while focusing on exceptional quality with very low yields. The wines are all made with indigenous yeasts and minimal interventions. The wines are currently bottled in a small winery outside of Athens, until they can build their own winery on the island.
