The slopes of Mount Meliton, mentioned in the many texts of ancient Greece, were intended by nature for the cultivation of grapes. Traveling to the shores of St. Athos in 1963, Yannis Karras saw them, and at first sight fell in love with the virgin beauty of this corner of Greece. The first vineyards of Porto Carras appeared in 1965 and marked the beginning of a real revolution in the wine-making industry of Greece of that time. 475 hectares of organic planting of vines surrounded by ancient forests has become one of the most extensive in Europe. Due to the exceptional climatic conditions of this area, diseases of the vine are eliminated only by biological methods, which is considered one of the rarest cases.
Since 2000, the group of companies "Tekhnikis Olimbiakis" actively participates in the modernization of the winery Porto Carras .
