Ktima Biblia Chora is situated on the southern slopes of Mount
Pangeon in Kavala, just 100km East of Thessaloniki. In 1998,
Vassilis Tsaktsarlis and Vangelis Gerovassiliou created this
privately owned vineyard which today extends over 118 acres at
an altitude of 300-420 meters. The soil is rocky and barren with
limestone and clay and good levels of drainage. The cool breezes
from the Agean Sea and Mount Pangeon are key factors in the
production of Biblia Chora’s Premium wines.

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.

Greece has one of the longest histories of winemaking along with the Babylonians in Mesopotamia and the ancient Egyptians. The Greeks brought the first vines to Sicily and Southern Italy, as well as Southern France and the Black Sea.
The Greek landscape is hot and arid with poor soil, which makes provides a good environment for vines. There are known to be over 300 grape varieties in existence in Greece, although most have yet to be made into wine. Greece has amazing potential for winemaking by just rediscovering it's classical varieties.
