Ktima Gerovassiliou’s owner, Evangelos Gerovassiliou, is no stranger to the winemaking world. After completing his studies in the School of Agriculture at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, he earned his diploma in oenology from the University of Bordeaux. He worked closely with Bordeaux University Professor, Emile Peynaud, who is internationally recognized as the forefather of modern oenology.
Vangelis (as his friends call him) is responsible for reviving the nearly extinct Malagousia grape and turning it into one of the most popular grape varietals to come out of Greece. He has been a regular guest on the Wine Spectator Grand Tour and is now being honored again by Wine & Spirits. On October 21, 2014, Gerovassiliou will be pouring the 2011 Avaton and 2012 Viognier at the Wine & Spirits Top 100 Tasting in San Francisco. It will also be a night to celebrate his 2 awards: Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wineries of the Year as well as his 2011 Avaton earning the Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wines for 2014.
