On the southeastern slopes of Mt Olympos we find the AOC region of Rapsani. The peaks of Mt Olympos and the neighboring Aegean sea form a unique microclimate that provide a positive effect on the production of the distinct Rapsani red wines made from a combination of indigenous
Xinomavro, Krassato and Stavroto grapes.
In Rapsani on Mount Olympos, where the gods of ancient Greek mythology used to survey the world, the Evangelos Tsantalis winery set new standards for the development of the region. The soil, rich in iron schist, the vineyards’ close proximity to the sea and the ideal adaptation of the 3 native grapes to the environment have created perfect conditions for the production of the outstanding AOC Rapsani wines.
