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

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.

After 30 Days Of Natural Wine myself and my liver took a little, well earned break. Thank you everyone who got involved and showed so much love and support, you’re all class ✨

But now back to your regular scheduled viewing! Sipping this beautiful Pet Nat from Greece this evening. Produced by @kamarawinery_dimitris in northern Greece from the indigenous Greek grape varietals Xinomarvo, Assyrtiko and Malagousia. Got this exciting and lively drop through @winesdirectirl (big shout out to my main lady Jackie ❤️) the wine is racy and brisk with notes of red apple, citrus, peach and melon. Absolutely lush on a balmy summer evening. A little bit explosive unless well chilled so be careful. Once saw @colmkeaney open a bottle in a wide Pyrex jug to catch overflow, genius! (I think original wisdom was bestowed unto him by @nickieconnolly non?x)

Вспоминали Грецию на закате. Лето. Море. Ну и рецина, конечно. Да ещё какая - не просто тебе ёлочный ширпотреб. А на родных дрожжах и со скинконтактом. Что тут есть? Да много чего, помимо традиционной сосновой свежести. Смирна и ладан, папина канифоль для паяльника и мамина ланкомовская пудра. Ну и ещё кое-какие замечательные растительные ароматы, о которых - не здесь.

Nuovi arrivi in scaffale, e questa volta la nostra voglia di sorprendervi si è spinta fino in Grecia con la cantina @kamarawinery_dimitris a pochi chilometri da Salonicco. Solo lavorazioni naturali e sostenibili negli undici ettari di questa tenuta nata dalla passione per la natura della famiglia Kioutsoukis, che abbandonata la città oggi coltiva solo varietà autoctone come Assyrtiko, Malagousia, Roditis, Xinomavro. .
Se sentite quindi nostalgia di vacanza passate a trovarci e un bel calice di Retsina – Assyrtiko macerato e resinato come da tradizione – in nostra compagnia vi aiuterà a staccare la spinta, fosse anche solo per un paio d’ore.
.
Vi aspettiamo tutti i giorni dalle 17, tranne la domenica, in Via Vigevano e in Via Govone!

Hydra - Fine Food & Wine Cellar

Ho sempre immaginato, che in un giorno primaverile, ormai vecchio e stanco, il grande Ulisse, passeggiando tra le bancarelle del mercato, tra profumi di lavanda, camomilla, brezza marina portata dal vento, abbia incontrato i suoi vecchi amici e guardandoli negli occhi, li abbia convinti che bisognasse andare, ancora una volta, lontano.
Mi piace pensare che abbiano brindato, prima di rimettersi in viaggio, con un vino, molto simile a questo, che sa di storia e di pietre bianche della Grecia.
Un vino, il Nimbus Albus, che vi porterà lontano, oltre i confini del mondo e il naufragar vi sarà dolce in quel mare!

Sen långlunch i trädgården med sedvanligt läcker sushi + otroligt god tempura-furikake-rulle från @noblehousesushi. Vi dricker en grekisk halvtorr Pet’ Nat till. Snacka om fusion. Bara solen saknas. Vinet har en ovanligt läcker doft för en Pet’ Nat och är läckert citrusmineraliskt i munnen. Gott men inte sensationellt. #kamarapure #kamaraestate #kamarapurewine #kamarawinery#Repost @grapecrush.wine

Kamara Pure Nimbus from @kamarawinery_dimitris is a 50/50 blend of assyrtiko and malagousia grapes, and comes from the clay and schist slopes of Kamara-Oraiokastro Thessaloniki in Greece. All of their wines are low intervention, with native ferment, and bottling without fining or filtration. 
This white has a deeper hue and you can expect notes of honeysuckle, white peach, apricot, lingering elderflower on the palate, and deep aromas of chamomile.
Pick it up tomorrow! 
Same day pickup Wed-Sat 4-6pm

Pét-Nat is a wild sparkling natural wine fermented in the bottle. Since it is not disgorged, the atmospheres are the same as Champagne. All that fermenting in the bottle pushes the yeast to the top, so you need to be a little careful when opening...It's all so exhilarating. ⤵️

1️⃣ chill before you swill. ✔️
2️⃣ prepare two glasses✔️
3️⃣ choose a good opener✔️
4️⃣ pop (carefully) & pour (quickly)✔️
5️⃣ enjoy!💯
