The distinctive aromas, characteristic of Semillon, blends is perfectly with the ripe fruit notes from the north-Aegean Assyrtiko.
Biblio Chora's Ovilos is rich with intense flavor and pleasant acidity that result in a fantastic food wine with potential for aging.

The Biblia Chora Estate was established in 2001 by two well known winemakers, Vassilis Tsaktsarlis and Vangelis Gerovassiliou. The two combined their love for wine and their experience in creating good quality wines to develop a model organic vineyard of 35 hectares at the foot of Mount Pageo in Kokkinochori, Kavala. The area has a long history of grape-growing and winemaking. In antiquity, a grape variety known as “biblia ambelos” was cultivated here for wine production and the region has been named "Biblia Chora" for this reason.

The estate vineyards are at an altitude of 400 m, on infertile and rocky soil, and cultivation follows the principles of organic farming, with particular respect for the environment. Other vine-growing tasks (e.g. leaf thinning, harvest) are done using traditional methods and without the use of any particularly high-tech means.

The modern winery is built in the middle of the vineyard and has an area of 5,500 m2. It includes areas for vinification, bottling, aging in both barrels and bottles, wine-tasting, reception and hospitality for visitors, as well as a multi-purpose hall (for conferences and presentations). All of the areas reveal the good taste and philosophy of the owners with regard to quality and high aesthetics related to wine.
