Estate Chatzigeorgiou was founded in 1952 by Vasileios Chatzigeorgiou, a pioneer and visionary farmer. He conducted a private land redistribution and formed an estate of 18.5 acres in Kariani, in the county of Kavala, in northeastern Greece. He realized the potential of the region for viticulture and created one of the first systematic vineyards with both Greek and French varieties.

The management of the estate was passed on to his son Nikolaos Chatzigeorgiou, who implemented an extensive restructuring of the vineyard through modern cultivating methods and in accordance to high environmental standards. He had realized the inconsiderate use of chemicals and fertilizers had grave consequences on both individuals and the environment. Subsequently, he joined a project of total management which later became an accredited organic farming scheme. At the same time, he experimented with wine-making, producing local wine which was extremely popular in the wider region.

In 2006, Vasilis Chatzigeorgiou and his wife, Rae, set off to create a modern and Mediterranean-styled winery that would also be open to visit. Their sole aim is to continue the long family tradition in the production of quality wine. Estate Chatzigeorgiou is dedicated to producing wines that faithfully reflect their grape origins. Each wine from Estate Chatzigeorgiou is known for its refined elegance, balance and classic structure.
