Domaine Tatsis' Natural Wine Tasting at La Maison du Vin, Limassol

 Domaine Tatsis is a family-owned winery located in the Goumenissa wine region of Greece. They are known for producing natural wines using biodynamic viticulture methods. These methods result in wines that are expressive of the terroir and have a unique character. At the tasting, you will have the opportunity to sample a variety of their wines, including their flagship Xinomavro and Negoska bottlings.

This event is the perfect opportunity to discover, a winery with a rich history and a deep commitment to sustainable practices. Here are three good reasons why you shouldn’t miss this event:

Learn about biodynamic viticulture

Biodynamic viticulture is a holistic approach to farming that takes into account the interconnectedness of all living things on the farm. The tasting will be hosted by a member of the Tatsis family, who will be happy to answer your questions about their wines and their winemaking philosophy. This is a great opportunity to get an insider’s perspective on the world of natural wine. and how it is implemented at Domaine Tatsis.

Negoska grapes and Old Roots

Here is a quixotic approach by the Tatsis brothers, who explored the Goumenissa area and contacted old winegrowers to discover a treasure trove of uncharted vineyards. The vines are over 70 years old and these small plots, located in different parts of the area with various soil types and orientations, offer a complex variety of grapes. Within the same vineyard, one can find old Xinomavro, Negoska, and various white varieties. Negoska’s unique, natural winemaking process results in a wine with remarkable tannic structure, strength, and a completely authentic character.

A Unique story: OINOPS PONTOS, Οίνωψ Πόντος

A collector’s wine born from the long-standing friendship of Evriviadis Sklavos and the Tatsis brothers, combining the emblematic red varieties of Kefalonia and Goumenissa. The parallel paths of Sclavos and the Domaine Tatsis, in Greek wine, share the same philosophy, that of biodynamic cultivation and gentle winemaking. In 2007 they decided, for the first time, to marry their favorite red varieties and their strengths. Mavrodafni of Kefalonia met Xinomavro and Negoska of Goumenissa in a top red wine. The wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured in old oak barrels and then bottled unfiltered.

Oinops Pontos is a 50/50 blend of Goumenissa (Xinomavro 25%- Negoska 25%) and Mavrodafni. It’s like a perfect match on a dating app, but for wine! Mother Nature can’t make up her mind on this one-  semi-continental weather with some winter snowfall and hot summers. The vineyard even gets hit by northern winds (Vardaris) and has low atmospheric humidity. Sounds like an intense love/hate relationship between the vines and the weather!
The Vinification is kept all-natural, of course! Goumenissa is vinified separately from Mavrodafni and each one remains in an oak barrel for 12 months and then they get to know each other for an additional 2 months.

It’s like the wine version of My Big Fat Greek Wedding!

In addition to the above, here are a couple of additional reasons to attend the event:

  • Domain Tatsis, Roditis Alepou 100%

    Domain Tatsis, Roditis Alepou 100%

    € 19

    Organic grapes grown at 250m altitude in clay and sandy loam soil. Harvested mid-Sept, destemmed with pre-fermentation extraction for 24hrs. Slow fermentation with native yeasts and no added sulphites. After 6 months of chillin' with lees, they hit the tank for another 12 months with some fine lees. Cheers 🍷




    These grapes get the VIP treatment - destemming, classic red alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts, and no added oenological materials (enzymes, proteins, etc.). Even control the temperature during their fermentation. After their time in the spotlight, the grapes then aged in a 500-liter barrel (American oak) for over twelve months, with no stabilization or collaring. And like true divas, bottled up unfiltered.
