About the winery
Markovitis Winery is located at the village of Polla Nera which is part of the famous PDO Naoussa zone in Macedonia, at the north of Greece. Μarkovitis family is well known in the area since 1972, for its exquisite wines made exclusively from the indigenous Greek variety Xinomavro, The 14 hectares of vineyards are cultivated according to the principles of organic farming and no pesticides or insecticides are used, while vines are only protected with copper and sulphur. The clay soil makes it harder for the plants to grow above ground forcing them to create better roots. Markos Markovitis, current owner of the winery and grandson of the founder, is a viticultrurist and oenologist with studies in Germany. He believes that all necessary interventions should only made in the vineyard in order to bring forth the main characteristics of the terroir and to create unique wines.
