Olympia Land

Olympia Land

The Olympia Land Estate is located in a small village, Koskina, only 2km (1.2 miles) from Ancient Olympia and 32km (20 miles) from Katakolon.

The land belongs to Liarommati family for over 150 years.

The history of the vineyard of the estate begins in 1985 with the revival of 15 acres. The family Liarommati gets used to make wine with the traditional way, such as pressing the grapes with the feet. It was like a festival because all the relatives arrived there to assist the family with the harvesting and after with the pressing.

In our days, the field of 15 acres expanded to 100 acres. This area now is planted with the local white varieties of Asyrtiko (Asserteko), Malagouzia (Malayousia) and Roditis (Rodetes), the noble red variety of Agiorgitiko (Ayioryeteko), the French variety of Chardonnay Blanc as well as the foreign varieties Merlot and Syrah.

In 2008 the Liarommati family created the modern winery of the estate. The winery facilities consist of two buildings surrounded by the vineyard of the estate.

In the first building is the production area, especially designed to welcome the grapes straight from the vintage, with all necessary modern equipment to produce quality wines.

In the second building, a stone – built mansion, is the underground maturation cellar, where the red wines age, as well as a big wine tasting room where the visitors can unveil the secrets of the Olympia Land wines.
