Oenogenesis is the creation of oenologist Bakis Tsalkos, one of the most important personalities of the wine industry of Greece, and oenophile Dominique Fontvielle from France. After extensive studies in oenology in Montpellier and many years of work in the oenological center of Grezillac in St Emillion, Bordeaux, Tsalkos returned to Greece to adapt his knowledge and expertise to the untapped wealth of indigenous Greek grapes.
Oenogenesis developed its impressive winery of Macedonian architecture in Adriani, Drama, an area praised for its exceptional terroir as one of the best in Greece.
