The winery

A large 4,000 sq.m. tower house, architecturally inspired by the Old Macedonian mansions, houses the Oenogenesis winery located in the Regional Unit of Drama, on the provincial road of Doxato – Adriani.

The winery is spread over five buildings structured in three levels. On the ground floor is the production, bottling and storage area with a suitable layout to facilitate the winery’s operations.

In addition, it is fully equipped with the latest modern means of production.

The wine bottling and storage area functions as an independent unit and at the same time as a natural continuation of the production area.


The privately owned vineyards of the Oenogenesis winery are located in the Regional Units of Drama and Kavala, which are renown for their temperate climate.


The Mediterranean climate of these areas is characterized by wet, mild winters and warm summers, thanks to the mountainous volume of the Pangaion Hills and the sea breeze of the Aegean Sea.


The cultivation of the vines follows the standards of organic farming for soils that are arid, do not retain water, stony, calcareous and semi-argillaceous.


The lack of nutritional elements for the vine and the constant care to improve our techniques ensure the production of good quality wines.


The varieties cultivated are the Greek Assyrtiko, Malagouzia, Xinomavro and Muscat of Alexandria and the international Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Ugni Blanc, Viogner, Grenache Rouge, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.


The Oenogenesis Winery produces and distributes Fegites, Deka, Thyrsus, Mataroa, and Skertso; all wines of unsurpassed quality and taste.

The Wines

The Oenogenesis Winery produces and distributes Fegites, Deka, Thyrsus, Mataroa, and Skertso; all wines of unsurpassed quality and taste.


Excellent, timeless, a constant value in time. The Latin "X" stands for Ten (Greek: Deka) or an hourglass that is slowly gaining time, as is the aging of the wines in this series.


Fegitis: the small skylight. Three Greek architectural designs of small skylights adorn the range of these wines. The mouth of the bottle is like a small skylight through which aromas and flavors emerge as the wine is served.


The name was chosen as a symbol of the human spirit and culture as in 1945, the ship of the same name transported Greeks, artists and scientists from Greece to southern Italy. Their aim was to reach Paris in order to escape the political persecution of White Terror.


Skertso: Borrowed from Italian word “scherzo” which means “joke, play”. It was chosen to characterize the lively character of the wine and the play of aromas and flavors.


The thyrsus in Greek mythology was the ritual wand of Dionysus and his entourage, the Maenads and Satyrs. A small straight stick of natural origin, perhaps of fennel or giant fennel, with a tufted flower at the top. It is often depicted tied with a ribbon or braided with vine leaves. At the top it is crowned with ivy, vine leaves, or a stone pine cone.
