Vatista Winery: Award-winning Wines

Vatistas Wines have been produced by local winemaker Yiannis Vatistas for over three decades. Thirty years ago, he made a commitment to developing wines made from local Greek varietals. Vatiasta wines won many awards at international wine competitions. Vatista makes fifteen excellent wines from different local varietals.

Recognizing that the attributes of local varietals could complement the flavors of classic international varietals, Yiannis Vatistas created an award-winning blend he called 50/50: fifty percent Agiorgitiko and fifty percent Cabernet Sauvignon.

Following Yiannis Vatista’s death in 2019, his daughter Eleni Vatista is operating the winery, following her father’s footsteps.
