The story of the Chatzivaritis Estate begins in 1994, when the first 50-acre vineyard was planted. Today the vineyard of the Chatzivaritis Estate consists of 120 acres in the area of Goumenissa. By emphasizing on the quality of the grapes, the fertility of the soil and the protection of the environment, they choose organic farming. miNimus is an orange blend of Malagouzia and Roditis grape varieties from their organic vineyards. The grapes are carefully hand selected, crushed, and allowed to go through spontaneous fermentation in clay amphora wine barrels without any additives, fining or filtration and with very low sulfur level, added before bottling. Skins remain in contact with the juice/wine for 1 month before being aged in French oak barrels for an additional period of 4 months and a further 6 months after bottling.
