Description to P.D.O. Goumenissa (O.P.A.P.) / Γουμένισσα

Appellation northwest of Thessaloniki in the southwest of the district of Kilkis in the Greek region of Macedonia. After the destruction of most of the vineyards by phylloxera, which occurred in 1917, there was an upswing as late as in the 1970ies. The Boutari winery contributed decisively to this through the national and international distribution of wines, as well as the successful effort to achieve OPAP classification in 1979. The vineyards cover about 320 hectares of mostly east-facing land at the foot of Mount Paiko (1,650 m). They must be above 150 meters above sea level, so another 250 hectares may not use the name. The maritime-continental climate is characterized by warm summers and cool winters. The dry POP red wine is pressed from the autochthonous varieties Xinomavro and Negoska (here also Goumenissas Mavro; to. 20%), whereby a common mashing and fermentation is prescribed. Well-known producers are Aidarinis, Arhontaki, Boutari, Chatzivaritis, Eftihdi, Kelesidis, Tatsis, Ligas and Titos.
