The vineyards of Rapsani cover the surrounding hills and count for 100 hectares. They have an eastern-southeastern orientation. Most of the vineyards are located at an altitude of 250 up to 800 metres. This leads to a longer harvest period that begins end of September and lasts for nearly a month. Three indigenous grape varieties are grown here; Krassato, Stavroto and the Xinomavro which is the prevailing grape variety in Northern Greece. It?s name means sour (xino) and black (mavro) because it gives wines with an austere structure and dark colour. The wine of Xinomavro has a particularly great ageing potential. The climate is continental and the vineyards are positively influenced by the breeze coming from the sea.
