History
The history of "Lefkas Earth" started in 2000 when Dimitris Rombotis, graduate of wine studies with experience as responsible vine-dresser in several wine-cellars around Greece, established the first wine cellar in the village of Sivros in South Lefkas.

His close collaboration with the wine producers of the arearesulted in high quality first material and led to the plantation of new vineyards.

Following the requests of modern times we have moved to the construction of a modern winery which is open to the publicand it is situated on the main road of Nydri - Vassiliki, above Sivota, offering a new blow and new dynamics, for even better results.

Winery
Wine is tradition, knowhow, is a place, it's human history and culture.

Believing in these and targeting the ultimate quality, we've created a complex of four buildings, in harmony with the inclined ground and the characteristics of the layout of the area without deviating from the strategic goal of the successful production line.

The wine-making and bottling takes place in the two large buildings. The modern equipment consists of stainless fermentation tanks with temperature control in every step of the production, pre-fermentation tanks, stabilization tanks, destemmer and pumps that ensure the minimum strain on the grapes, oak barrels for the ageing, a laboratory for quality control, automatic and semi-automatic bottling equipment as well as an air-conditioned cellar for the ageing of the already bottled wine.
