Katogi Averoff

When Evangelos Averoff put his dream into practice in 1961, by introducing Cabernet Sauvignon shoots to Greek soil for the first time in order to recultivate an infertile slope of Mt. Pindos in Metsovo, he never imagined that beyond his endeavour to develop the land of his birthplace, he was also initiating a true revolution for vinification in Greece. Indeed, with the production of Katogi red wine, he was the first to marry Greek and foreign varieties with success. Above all however, the principles and progress of the company would provide some of the first examples of authentic viniculture and wine-making achievements in Greece - and a production model that would still be dominant 30 years later, bringing to light the great potential of the Greek vineyard.
