Domaine Biblia Chora is situated on the slopes of mount Pangeon at Kokkinochori, Kavala. In 1998, Vassilis Tsaktsarlis and Vangelis Gerovassiliou created a vineyard of biological cultivation which today extends to over 350 acres. Within this stretch of land is the modern winery in which the wines of the Domaine are produced.
The philosophy of the winemaking focuses on the production of high quality wine that is bind by the ecosystem of mount Pangeon and expresses the uniqueness of the natural surroundings. To achieve this goal, the cultivation and vinification take place under special catering, using not only the knowledge and experience but also by merging tradition with technology.

A deep ruby wine that matures in brand new French oak casks for 18 months and is kept under ideal conditions in the underground cellars of the winery for another 2 years. Complex, clear red fruit, caramel, cedar wood and chocolate aroma with nut and spice notes. Rich, powerful flavour with a full body, a fine structure and characteristic tannins giving this amazing wine its long aftertaste and great ageing potential.
Varietal composition: Semillon 50%, Assyrtiko 50%
Characteristics: A wine, yellow-green in colour that matures in oak for 8 months. The distinctive aroma of apricot and honey- a characteristic of Semillon- blends perfectly with the notes of citron and lemon from the north-aegean Assyrtiko. A variety of recognizable, distinct aroma integrated with hints of vanilla and dry nuts, elegant, fat with a well balanced acidity structure that results in potential for ageing.
Varietal composition: Agiorgitiko 100%
Characteristics: The first successful attempt to make an Agiorgitiko wine outside Nemea. A deep ruby wine of limited production matured for 12 months in new oak casks. Its rich cherry aroma-typical of the variety- combines wonderfully with vanilla, cedar wood and spice notes. Successful adaptation of the variety to the Pangeon areain combination with low yields give a wine with a rich, full-bodied taste, excellent tannins and long aroma.
