Volacus Malagouzia

Tinos has to be the most exciting island to be a wine producer in the world! Local Tinian Michalis Kontizas founded Volacus in 2010. He has had to do everything by hand. If you are looking for soft fruity whites, give this a miss! Here you have an unyielding bouquet, but the palate is packed with dry, aromatic fruit cloaked in zinging acidity. There is a salinity and minerality that adds to the energy. Incredible for Malagousia!

Volacus, Tinos, Aegean Islands

Volacus wine was founded in 2010 by Michalis Kontizas, a young and ambitious cultivator and winemaker, and his wife Irene. They planted new vineyards of indigenous Greek varieties, producing their firs vintage in 2016. Volacus wine focuses on reviving the wine traditions of Tinos: producing high-quality wines, while respecting nature and following organic techniques. The vineyards are located in Gardari near the village of Falatados, an area chosen for its long tradition in viticulture and wine production. The vineyards are formed in terraces in an area filled with round granite rocks, known as volakes, at an altitude of 400-440 metres, in clay soil. Volacus' ethos is to maintain a low acreage yield and only practice organic farming. The vines have been planted so that they are close to the ground, benefit from the sun, but are sheltered from the strong meltemi wind and diseases.
