Velvendo & Siatista

Tailor Made Wine Tours in Velvendo & Siatista

Let’s design your wine and gastronomic journey in Velvendo and Siatista that will be perfectly tailored to suit your requirements!


You choose the experiences and we plan the rest!

From the mountainous and arid Siatista with the unique ‘Iliasto’ wine, to the lakeside of Velvendos plains, this journey promises unique experiences.

In Siatista a family winery revives the old exclusive wine of the area from the local varieties Moschomavro and Xinomavro that is left to dry for 60 days. Sweet as her wine, Georgia the owner, will take you on a trip full of history and then in her cosy traditional salon, will offer you a taste of this sweet wine full of aromas.

The little town of Siatista, hidden in the arid mountains, has been one of the most prosperous towns from the 17th to the 19th century, due to the production and trade of leather, fur and cotton. During the prosperous years many mansions were erected and are still standing tall today. One of them is the magnificent Mansion of Poulko, full of ornaments, painted walls, and tinted windows that date back to 1800. Right next to it, is the servants quarters, a small building, renovated with love by a local couple with personal means and labour, that is full with everyday and unique objects from previous centuries.

A scenic drive through the prairies and the Polifitos lake bridge will take you to marvellous Velvendo county, the land of vines and peach trees. Tucked between the lake and the mountains, this region is a rare jewel.

There are two wineries worth visiting, both boutique and family run by 3rd and 4th generation winemakers. Joyous people with love for the land and commitment to their legacy.

During summer, this land offers the most precious fruit, the delicious peaches of Velvendo, famous around the world. We can stroll around the peach trees and then visit the local cooperative to learn everything about the peach!

Close to the village of Velvendo but well hidden by the beech and plane trees is “Skepasmeno Waterfall”. A short scenic walk under the thick shade of the beech trees and by the water canal is quite rejuvenating.

At the end of the trip you can enjoy a typical Greek lunch under the plane tree by a picturesque little square.

All can be arranged, all you need is time and high spirits!

Traditional Mansion of Poulko

The construction of this unique traditional mansion started in 1752 by a wealthy merchant and was finished in 1952.

The structure is characteristic of local architecture and has unique wooden ornamentation, exquisite colourful wooden ceilings and painted walls. It is definitely not to be missed. An expert guide will reveal the mansion’s history throughout the centuries.

Kamkouti Vineyards

The 3rd and 4rth generation of Kamkoutis family continue cultivating their own vines in order to produce wines, respecting history, values, nature and heritage.

This hilly and mountainous viticulturist area between the lake and the mountains has an exceptional microclimate, fertile and diverse soils formed from old geological sediments and good soil drainage. All these characteristics produce the high quality wines of PGI Velventos.

This charming small winery and the beautiful people will welcome you for a tour and tasting of their wines. We shall not forget to taste the excellent liqueur father Kamkoutis makes out of their grapes.

Voyatzis Winery

The Voyatzis family enjoys a long heritage as wine merchants, documented since the early 20th century.

Members of the third family generation, Yannis, who has studied oenology at the University of Bordeaux, France and has substantial experience in the Greek wine production, along with his brother, Nico, who is an engineer, and their father, Harissis, decided to return to Velvento and establish a new, privately owned vineyard.

A modern 3-hectare vineyard was created by the lake, located in an old vineyard of the Voyatzis family. Designed to produce quality wines of a distinctive character, it was planted with local and other varieties during 1991-1994.

The winery itself, a lean and modern building, hosts the winemaking areas and our tasting will take place in the unique tasting room that literally “floats” over the vines and the lake.

On the way back we will stop at the wooden kiosk with the panoramic view of the waterfall.
