Pantos estate is located in Ydroysa, at the prefecture of Florina. It is a creation of the Pantou family, who cultivates the vines and produces wine in the traditional way since 1986. Since 1997 the estate is part of the EU organic farming program and in the same year is created the private winery and distillery of the family. Now the company is formed as a company that produces and trades wine and its extracts (tsipouro). The organic certification agency undertakes the total check of the vineyards and the monitoring of the company, confirming this way the traditional and quality principles of all phases of production.
Pantos family vineyard is located at Mount Vernon (Vitsi), in Ydrousa village and at 8 km distance from the town of Florina. With great care and with respect to nature, the family grows grapes in the traditional organic way and always according to the strict requirements of EU Regulation 2092/91. There, at the ideal altitude of 700 m and the specificity of the area, are cultivated mainly local indigenous varieties such as „Xinomavro“, „Moschomavro“ and local „Roditis“, which have been brought to the region by soldiers of General Amyntas, but also some international kinds of grape such as „Chardonnay“, „Sauvignon“ and „Cabernet“.
The facilities of the estate are well made and open to the public. In our hospitable spaces take place various activities such as educational seminars on wine, wine festivals and tasting events. The doors of the farm are always open to whoever wants to watch closely the production of fine wine and traditional way of distilling the „tsipouro“.
