In the town of Tyrnavos, in the PGI Tyrnavos area, located in the region of Thessaly in Central Greece resides Ktima Zafeirakis where the Zafeirakis family has been practicing viticulture for more than 100 years.
Christos Zafeirakis, the 4th generation winemaker, studied Enology in the University of Athens and continued his studies in the University of Turin and the Agricultural University of Milan for his Master’s degree in Winery Management while he worked for several years in different Italian regions like Piemonte, Alto Adige and Tuscany.

Christos is considered one of the young, pioneering Greek winemakers and is widely credited with reviving the indigenous variety of Limniona, creating world class, elegant, fine wines while simultaneously leaving his mark on both Malagousia and Chardonnay with his distinct style.
“Love, Knowledge, and Respect to Tradition are the core elements for the creation of our wines as our goal is to deliver the expression of our vineyards, its aromas and flavor in your glass" Christos Zafeirakis.
