Giannis Triantafyllidis has strong knowledge in the wine sector, as for many years was the Head of the implementation of all wine production stages in notable wineries• from the harvesting of grapes to the bottling, and from the aging of the wine to the management of the vineyards. He also spent a long period as a judge in International wine competitions, where he was evaluating wines vinified under the influence of a targeted style without having a pure expression of terroir.
The wines of Ktima Erithrou Rodou are Giannis' result from the winemaking experience, aiming to approach an authentic exploration of the site and to focus on the careful cultivation of a remarkable vineyard, as an integral part of a unique ecosystem.
For him, the most genuine form of winemaking is to highlight the energy that exists in the vineyard. Therefore, the wines of Ktima Erithrou Rodou have a unique character that represent their place of production.
Giannis' decisions on viticulture and vinification are made solely with a view to minimal intervention in natural processes so that each bottle captures and conveys the history of its creation.
