From family vineyards, a product of Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) in Karditsa, Greece. The winery is surrounded by eighty acres of vineyard.
At the base of Mount Agrafa, near the banks of the ancient river Kouraliou (today named Sofaditis) lies the village Filia.
Historically, on the outskirts of this village, in the vineyard areas, every family had a small field in which they cultivated their own vineyards. For centuries, each family produced wines that were the pride of the region. However, during the last century, the farmers either left the village, or were occupied with different and more lucrative crops. Consequently, many of the vineyards were abandoned.
However, some families remained. Constantine Xanas continued to cultivate his vines, every year devoting more time and care to his labors. Within a few years, he knew he was headed in the right direction as his efforts began to pay off and his wines gained recognition. Constantine passed on his love and knowledge to his son, Vaios Xanas, who had worked side by side with him in the fields.
In the early 1990s, the winemaker, Vaios Xanas partnered with his economist friend, Christopher Christoforou, to bring new life to the abandoned vines in this area. Over the years, the small family vineyard of Constantine Xanas grew to encompass ten cultivated hectares. In 2014, they founded Filia Gi Winery.
Pairs well with roasted meats and vegetables, cooked sauce and poultry with delicate sauces
