History in under a Minute

Above Kalambaka, rises one of the most impressive and imposing geological phenomena, the rocks of Meteora, which are considered one of the most important monuments in the world. There, from the 10th century, the monasteries of Meteora were built, which, together with Mount Athos, are the most important centres for the preservation of manuscripts and have played a decisive role in the preservation of our tradition and culture. Apart from this important work, the monks made sure to preserve and transmit the art of viticulture and winemaking during the hard times of the Turkish occupation, and following the liberation of the region, viticulture flourished in the area. Vineyards developed near the monasteries and their estates.

So, in 2006, always respecting the natural environment, the winery started to cultivate vines, applying integrated management systems and organic farming. In 2009, Liakos Winery created its winery and facilities, which became a sole proprietorship, with wine production as its main activity. It aims to produce quality wines, with the characteristics of the microclimate of the region.
