The Vourvoukelis Estate Winery was founded by Nikos and Flora Vourvoukelis in 1999, in the area of Avdira, in the Province of Xanthi, when Nikos, who had grown up surrounded by vineyards and wine from a young age, felt the desire, beyond his professional occupation as a doctor, to work with the cultivation of vineyards and wine. With the vision of resurrecting the famous vineyard of Avdira, he planted 2 hectares in the fertile hills of the area (today they have reached 10) with native and international varieties of wine grapes.
In parallel with the pursuit of this enterprise, the two older sons in the family, Giorgos and Odysseas, pursued studies in the field of oenology, became involved with the winery, and now manage it. For the moment, their younger brother Alexios is following in their father’s footsteps in medicine. Their mother Flora continues to accompany their efforts. Unfortunately, the founder of the Estate, Nikos Vourvoukelis, left us in February of 2014.
