About

Our passion

What happens when an entire family is passionate for nature? They abandon city life and move to countryside. This is the story of Kioutsoukis family (Dimitrios, Eleftheria and their children). Dimitrios Kioutsoukis  with his family assistance and inspiration planted 11 hectars of vines (mainly Greek grape varieties: Assyrtiko, Malagousia, Roditis, Xinomavro) in northern Greece near Thessaloniki, an area well known from ancient times for its wines. 

Dimitrios (chemical engineer- UC Davis winemaking) and his daughter Stavroula ( agronomist- oenologist) carrying on the family tradition and passionate about permaculture principles use more than organic  methods in viticulture and winemaking. Their main goal is to give birth to wines versatile, unique that express both their philosophy and the terroir.

Seeking the real taste of  life they created the Kamara pure wines, low intervention wines (natural wines).

All Kamara pure wines are naturally fermented with indigenous yeasts , have no oenological substances added and they are bottled without filtration and no added sulfites

Living wines

Let the nature be the winemaker

"Let the nature do the fertilization"   

 Does this method makes winemaking easier, or harder in the long run?

  In the first years, we have a lot of hard work to do, because human in general has destroyed the nature up to a point. The use and abuse of fertillisations, pesticides, fungicides are only some of the factors having led to this destruction as well as to a subsequent weakening of nature’s power. For generations, the majority of farmers and agronomists thought of nature as flawed, as something that really needed his intervention. So, in order to undo the negative results of those bad practices which have been going on for so many generations, hard work need to be done. We have the vineyard checked every 2 days for diseases; most of the work in the vineyard is done manually, so that we do not bother the wildlife as much as we can.

    Regarding the vinification, we could not say that the work is easier or harder. What we can certainly say is that work is more risky. We should throw away the grapes that are not 100% healthy and good and  as a consequence the production is much less than in a conventional vineyard. In the winery, the work continues with controling the wines or the fermenting musts every day. We taste the wines in order to see if there is any fault, we control the temperatures of the tanks, we check the wines in our laboratory-analysis of volatile acidity, analysis of biomass( to see the population of the yeasts ) etc.

    In the long run, to be honest, I could not say for sure whether the work will be harder or easier; for the moment we have to face a lot of difficulties, but I think –and hope!- that in the future the situation will become more stable and thus a bit easier. Right now, only one thing is beyond every doubt: that the winemaking of this type will continue to intrigue me no matter how hard it is.

On Tuesday I got to taste the world's only orange retsina when the passionate and enthusiastic winemaker Dimitrios Kioutsoukis from Kamara Winery @kamarawinery introduced his natural wines at Wino @kalliowino as a preparation for the Helsinki Natural Wine 2019 @helsinkinaturalwine at Korjaamo @korjaamohki this weekend.

This Kamara Pure Nimbus Ritinitis 2017 absolutely enchanted me with the strong herbal pine flavours. A truly unique wine so make sure to taste it at Helsinki Natural Wine this weekend or at Wino after that, cause I can assure you, you've never tasted a wine like this.

Also the Kamara Pure Nimbus Albus 2017 white from assyrtiko and malagousia grapes was a truly great wine so don't miss that either.

And on the last picture there's the delicious portion of whitefish, kolhrabi & miso that the head chef Oona Bondestam @oonabondestam from Wino has prepared specially for Helsinki Natural Wine 2019 this weekend and I can warmly recommend to taste that one also.

So all in all, a great natural wine weekend coming up in Helsinki and hope to see you there on Saturday. Holla on the comments or in a PM if you're coming.

Helsinki Natural Wine -tapahtuman esittelytilaisuus, jossa mukana @kamarawinery tuottaja Dimitrios Kiotsoukis. Pääsimme maistelemaan kolmea tämän kreikkalaisen alkuviinitekijän luomuksia, joista mieleenpainuvin oli tämä mahtava Retsina orange wine! Kirkkaan keltainen väri, miellyttävä ja tasapainoinen hapokkuus, valloittava laventeli/yrttien tuoksu. Vahva suositus. Saatavilla sekä Winossa, että viikonloppuna Korjaamolla järjestettävässä Helsinki Natural Wine -tapahtumassa!#Repost @kvalitetsviner

Besök från Thessaloniki nästa vecka i Stockholm och Gbg! Vi påminner om att Skaldjursklubben/Bar Centro i Göteborg håller öppet en onsdag bara för oss. Måns roddar goa rätter med grekisk inspiration och @hejgrisen och @nicoigbg häller vin tillsammans med Dimitrios från @kamarawinery! 5 rätter 6 viner 1000pix, men det går även bra att droppa in en kortare tid. Men att inte äta allt är dumt tycker vi. Boka hos backlund.mans@gmail.com

🍃 The Kioutsoukis family, like so many others in northern Greece, migrated from Bulgaria in the early 90’s, and carried with them the knowledge and the passion for the vineyard and wine. They planted about 10 hectares of vineyards in the hills of Mygdonia in Northern Greece, near Thessaloniki. In the domaine’s vineyard Greek grape varieties are mainly planted like #Assyrtiko, #Malagousia, #Roditis and #Xinomavro. The low hillside, along with the micro climate, a refreshing northern wind is present all year round and the different types of soil from clay-sand to lighter parcels with small stones and schists, gives exquisite wines with excellent aging potentials. From 2015 the winery has completed the conversion to natural wine making. The wines are produced following the traditional way, manipulated gently and slowly in order not to shock or spoil the wine’s character. The main goal is authentic, vibrant wines in small productions, with the fewest possible interventions that express the terroir and the philosophy of the winemaker. 🦑 @kamarawinery

GREECE to LA—  #tbt to last year’s #greekwinetour with @dionysigrevenitis and @dnswines 🇬🇷 I had the pleasure of visiting the amazing @kamarawinery in #Macedonia and meeting the lovely Kiotsoukis family. A few months later, they made the reverse journey for @rawwineworld LA 💜 So fun!
.
Everyone has a role at this small family estate. The vineyards are farmed by hand in keeping with traditional Greek, #holistic and #biodynamic principals 🌱 They make fresh and funky #naturalwine from indigenous grapes that are a joy to drink.
.
One of the most memorable meals of the trip was their home-cooked family-style Greek feast—complete with wines of course—that finished with a sweet serenade 🎸 .
IN LA ✨ These wines are very fun to pair with food 🥘 the #nimbusalbus white was among the first menu pairings I did for @lqfoodings — so great with savory ingredients ⚡️ You can find them on the shelf at @missionwines as well as a handful of other enlightened drinking holes around town🍷 Cheers!
