Our company was founded in 2011. Our vision and guideline at Vakakis Wines is to create a limited number of bottles of high quality wine.
Choosing our staple material and wine-making process is of utmost importance in making our products.
We have in parallel, tried from the start to feature little-known local wine-making treasures.
Our satisfied customers insure for us continuous growth and presence at new selling points in Greece as well as abroad. Our products can be found at selected spots on Samos.
“Our decision to follow this particular action and to bare all this hardship is based on our belief,as Samians, that this treasure that lies in Samos was not utilized as it should be by a slow-moving organization like the cooperative resulting in the serious doubt about the future of Samian vineyards.
Thus, the distinction of the unique Samoan vineyard with all its byproducts is our utmost objective because only in this way can our company have a promising future”.
In addition, the philosophy of our company is the production of a small number of superior quality and highly aesthetic bottles from rare local indigenous varieties. In this way we aspire to slowly create a competitive product which will have its own clientele. We also aspire to make our wine the recognizable ambassador of Samoan wine abroad.
All our vineyards are of organic cultivation, linear formation and have been planted from 2004-2012.
The average production per 1000 sq metres does not exceed 500 kilograms. We were the first to bring large scale linear vineyards to Samos.
Our cultivation varieties are all Greek and preferably of the Aegean variety. White varieties include the Samos Muscat and the Asyrtic. The red varieties are the Phokiano, the Augustiatis and the Black Muscat of Samos.
The promotion of the Black Muscat variety which was near extinction, was a personal wager for us. The first wines of this variety which we produced justified decades of effort…
The premises of the winery are 250 sq metres. It is small but functional and in accord with the size of the company.
Wine-making, bottling and collection takes place here. Storage is done in other suitably formed premises.
The winery is certified with ISO22000-2005 with the Affirmation of Compliance for production of organic wine and with the verification of Greek business.
Samian wine is, of course no exception and we aspire to make our wine the key to knowing more about Samos’ famous product and about Pythagoras and his work.
Pythagorean EPOGDOON – Barrel,
Pythagorean MUSIC OF THE SPHERES.
The dry wines designate the mathematical genius of Pythagoras (White /Theorem and Pentagram, Rosé /the Pyramid, Red /Tetractys.
The sweet and semi-sparkling wines designate the link between mathematics and music respectively (White /Epogdoon, Red /Music of the spheres) and philosophy (Pythagorean Tree).
The semi-sweet wines reveal his relationship to wine (White /the Just cup, Rosé /Wine Goblet).
Devote a bit of time to the magical world of Pythagoras and you will soon realize why wine is culture.
