It is far from the sea and close to very high mountain ranges giving it a distinctly continental climate. It was founded by Christoforos Pavlidis in 1988. He has previously made a fortune in stone and marble, a product from the region. The vineyard soil is primarily calcareous clay. The make both red and white wines and use mainly traditional Greek vine varieties: assyrtiko, agiorgitiko (agiorghitiko), malagousia, mavrodaphne… and also some international varieties: sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo, merlot etc. The winery is very modern, fully equipped with winemaking technology. There is a vast underground cellar housing the barrels for aging some of the wines.
