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.

Nice post from this amazing Bistro from
Montreal Boxermans. It writes for the wise winelist, the wines choosed by our lovelyfriend Morganne#Repost @underdogwinesociety

Trying out Boxermans tonight, that our friends over at Tastet @tastet.ca describe as ‘a small but superb bistro’ on Van Horne in Outremont and that Marie-Claude Lortie @mc.lortie named in her article ‘Où boire du bon vin’ (‘Where to drink good wine’) in Montreal a couple of weeks ago in LaPresse.

In our glass? Kamara Stalimus 2018 from the Kamara Estate Winery in Macedonia, Greece - an assemblage of 80% Malagousia and 20% Xinomavro grapes from the hills of Oraiokastro, Thessaloniki.

Organic, biodynamic and low intervention (unlined, unfiltered, no added sulfites) it’s full, fresh and bright, a beautiful golden straw in colour, citrus, floral and botanical notes on the nose and light herbs / flowers to the taste with nice salinity and minerality at the end. 
Private import only here in Québec but for our Ontario friends: availability at the LCBO for $31.90.

What we consider a perfect pre-dinner wine! And Boxermans? If your in Montréal - a must-try for their wine list, shareable plates and beautiful candlelit space.

Orange. Greek. Wine.

The Nimbus Ritinitis is an orange resinated wine. 100 % Assyrtiko Grape macerated in Stainless steel tanks with the must. During fermentation high quality Pine Resin from the mountains of Evia Is added. An old family tradition.

Bright yellow to Amber Colour. Intense aromas of Thyme, lavender, oregano and Ginger. Hints of Chios mastic at finish prove the quality of the Pine Resin used.

The story of the Kioutsoukis family has deep roots for their passion for Nature and History of their land in Northern Greece, near Thessaloniki. All Kamara Pure Wines are Naturally Fermeneted with indigenous yeasts. Have no oenological substances added and they are bottled without Filtration and no added sulfites.

Going Greek this weekend with these two goddesses 🙅.⠀
⠀
The Xi-Ro is a really interesting wine, really well balanced – light in body and with medium tannins and a bold palate, it’s a super rustic wine that really leaves you with a massive hunger for more. Tasting the wines of Ktima Ligas truly conjures up the taste and history of this historic area. ⠀
⠀
Kamara Estate Pure Nimbus Ritinitis is definitely one for the more adventurous wine drinkers, this wine provides hints of Chios mastic on the finish prove the quality of the pine resin used. Kamara produce really pure low intervention, natural wines - if you're keen for a herbal Christmas, then this is your bottle!!⠀

#kamaraestate #retsina #xi-ro #ktimaligas #greekwine #greekwines #greece #Assyrtiko #mywinemoment #londonwine #pullthecorkmoment #organicwine #naturalwine #lowinterventionToday's the day of Saint Barbara. According to the tradition of Drama,my birth city, I made "Barbara", a soup with wheat, lots of nuts and raisins,cinamon,dried figs, carnation and nutmeg. Memories from my childhood are brought back when my mother,mrs Maria,woke up at night to make " Barbara". We were waking up in the morning, although school was closed that day, to eat warm, sweet and full of energy "Barbara". This day was our favourite!The women of the neighborhood exchanged their " Barbara's" ,making an informal competition for the best and most delicious "Barbara". Beautiful memories!Authentic and simple#kamarawinery #kamaraestate #kamarapurewines #authenticliving #kioutsoukisfamily #barbarasoup#dramaLovely afternoon in Kamara vineyards.

🎙️🍷Kävin muutama viikko sitten @radiorocksuomi Korporaatiossa juttelemassa @harrimoisio ja @sainio vieraana natuviineistä, tämän päivän viinikulttuurista sekä myös tuolloin tapetilla olleesta @viinilehti järkkäämästä Viini & Ruoka -tapahtumasta. Maistettiin lähetyksessä kolme herkullista vinkkua, joita on kaadettu viime aikoina meikäläisen Naturalviinien ABC -tastingissa – viimeksi em. tapahtumassa.
