Achinos, Central Greece

La Tour Melas

Set on 27 acres surrounded by ancient, untouched oak forests, overlooking the Aegean Sea in central Greece, La Tour Melas is making unforgettable, award-winning wines in a very special way. La Tour Melas uses biodynamic, organic methods and treats the vineyard as a unified organism. This balances the interrelationship of soil, plants and animals as a self-nourishing system without external input. Flocks of geese and sheep graze the vineyard in winter to keep weeds in control, and bees begin pollinating the surrounding flowers in spring. In harmony with the astronomical planting calendar, artisan wine growers choose the precise phase of the moon for cultivating, pruning, harvesting, and even filling bottles and racking barrels.
