B.C. Spiliotopoulos Winery
Christos Spiliotopoulos created his small boutique winery in Kalamata, Greece, in the early 1990's. Since then, Christos has honed his craft and produces superb red and white wines in limited quantities to assure that they are consistently excellent.
Superb grapes flourish in the rocky soil of his vineyards, nurtured by the pure waters of the spring of St. Paul, and warmed by the Mediterranean sun. Native white Assyrtiko grapes grow side by side with the French Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varietals.
Dimitra, goddess of agriculture, blessed the fertile farms of "Geromilos," or ancient mill, which have been owned by the Spiliotopoulos family for many centuries. From this small corner of Messinia come the delicious Dimitra Wines, named in honor of the goddess who so many eons ago bestowed her blessings on this little paradise.
The ruins of the ancient mill ("Geromilos") for which the Spiliotopoulos farms are named was water-powered by the Spring of St. Paul to produce flour from the grain for the local community. Today, besides grapes, the family produces superb Kalamata olives, renowned extra virgin olive oil, and Kalamata figs that are dried in the sun before heading to market from the same fields.
