about us rouvaliswinery

We have great respect for the land we cultivate on.
Thus we create, attending to the needs of this special place and combining tradition with modern practices.

The vineyard cultivation, the art of vinification and the way of consuming wine existed from ages ago. We are using ancient knowledge and experience acquired through the years. Combining them with modern science, oenology and viticulture we produce distinctive wines with character.

This is our goal, to produce wines of the highest quality that express the unique characteristics of the Aigialeian terroir that also match the modern tastes.

Quality has become a habit for us and someone meets it in every step of our work. It is there, from the work in the vineyards to the wine making process, in the gravity winery. It is present in our education. Quality is the foundation of everything we do and we do it with vivid enthusiasm.

Vineyard

The great wines are those that can bring out the uniqueness of the terroir. They can only come from the healthiest of grapes that are also, of good breeding.

The climate in Aigialeia, ideal for the cultivation of vines, predisposes to the fewest possible interventions! Due to the temperature difference between mountain and sea, cool breeze is a common phenomenon. This air currents protect the vines from the development of diseases and make the cultivation in the area practically bio! Our family owned vineyards are certified for organic cultivation as well as lot of the vineyards of our collaborating vine growers.

All the viticultural practices in the vineyard such us pruning, green pruning and green harvest or grape harvest, are carried out by hand and with the outmost care for each and every vine. This happens due to the gradient of the slopes and the long on-going tradition in viticulture practice we have in Aigialeia.

Our techniques constantly develop.

We applied the method of Precision Viticulture on a zone level, for the first time in Greece. From this process, significant knowledge was acquired regarding the differentiation in sections of the same vineyard. This differentiation was a result of either geomorphological causes or cultivation practices or even occurred, due to the tilt of the water course. This knowledge led us to adapt practices accordingly. We face the challenges the terrain was posing in order to improve our techniques. This way we produce wines of the finest quality.

On the highest parts of the viticultural zone, 2 meteorological stations have been placed. We are in constant communication with our viticulturists making use of the results in order to improve the cultivation process.
