Overlooking the gulf of Corinth is the village of Ano Diakopto, once described (all the way back in 150AD) as the ideal place for grape cultivation by the geographer Pausanias. It is here that brothers, Aristides and Stathis and winemaker, Panagiotis Papagiannopoulos are farming organic local varietals such as Roditis, Mavro Kalavrytino and Malagousia to create the Natur range.

Mavro Kalavrytino grown on the Pteri plateau from 35 year old bush vines in clay soil. yields are low and the grapes are cooled by the Mediterranean Sea. Grapes are hand picked, crushed and spontaneous fermentation occurs followed by 14 days skin contact before pressing and raging in large oak tanks for 5 months.
