The Thymiopoulos family has owned vineyards in Naoussa for several generations. Until recently, the family grew grapes and supplied wineries with their fruit. After graduating from The University of Athens oenology program, Apostolos Thymiopoulos returned to his family’s vineyards and began producing wine under his own label, Ghi kai Uranos (Earth & Sky). 2004 was the wineries first vintage which was a hit across Greece and in Europe. Ghi kai Uranos also caught the attention of influential wine writers such as Nico Manessis and the UK’s Tom Stevenson.  The beauty of this wine comes from the fact that Apostolos was able to coax out Xinomavro’s more approachable  qualities without the high levels of acidity and tannin. This wine can be drunk now as well as cellared for at least 10-15 years. Thymiopoulos Vineyards will be a winery to watch as its production grows.
