". . . Tatsis Family . . ." 1924
Built at the foot of the mountain Paiko, Goumenissa the capital of the province Paionia which belongs to the prefecture Kilkis with a population of 4500 inhabitants is only 65 km far from Thessaloniki. This large-village was built during the first years of Turkish domination round the strong monastery of the Virgin Mary. The area developed into a significant vinicultural center. From 1922 to 1925 a respectful number of refugees from Eastern Romilia and Pontos was resettled in Goumenissa and enriched the indigenous traditional with new elements.
Far away in place and time began the occupation of the Tatsis family with the vineyard and wine. Comes originally from the Ano Vodeno of the Eastern Romilia, an area which is vinicultural for centuries. In 1924 the refugees grandfathers chose as
a place of establishment the village Goumenissa which is also vinicultural. The Tatsis family acquired vineyards on the hillock of Libaskerit and Gerakona, an ideal position for viniculture in calcareous non irrigated soil. They were initially cultivated by the grandfather and now they have come to the hands of his son Christos, together with his own sons, Periclis and Stergios. From 1998 the vineyards are being cultivated and certified according to the rules of organic farming. From 2002 the vineyards also cultivated biodynamical with a production of about 3000 to 7000 kilos per hectare. The vinification is taking place in the privately-owned installations of the traditional family winery and afterwards is following the aging of the red wine in oak barrels.
Tatsis estate is a member of the Wines of North Greece union and takes part in the program Wine Roads of North of Greece.
The winery is open to anyone who wants to visit it after telephone communication.
