About the winery.
Butali was founded in 1879 by Ioannis Butaris with the aim of producing and selling high quality bottled wine. 1906 saw the completion of the first winery and wine retail store in the Naoussa region, and the first sale of "red wine in bottles" in Greece. This wine is "Naoussa Butali". Since then, Butali wines have been further developed by their children and grandchildren, and today the company has six wineries in Greece and exports to 25 countries. Today, Butali has six wineries in Greece and exports to 25 countries. Exports account for 40% of the total sales, and Butali wines are highly regarded in Greece and around the world.
Butali was the first company to sell bottled red wine in Greece.
Naoussa, one of the most beautiful places in Macedonia, Northern Greece, is the birthplace of Butali Wine, the oldest winery in Greece. In Naoussa, viticulture had long been lost. Butari not only re-established and protected the almost forgotten cultivation of the Kusinomavro grape, but also established the promotion of the variety and the PDO region by making special wines. Butali formed a few select groups of growers in the region and began to manage their vineyards. This led to the development of quality ratings that became a model for Greek wine standards.
Awards such as the "International Winery of the Year 2010" and "European Winery of the Year 2008", both of which were awarded for the 13th time, are testimony to the excellent work and quality-driven attitude of the Butali winemaking team.
Butali's vineyards on Mount Vermio
The Naoussa vineyard is located on the sunny southeastern slopes of Mount Vermio, sheltered from the cold north wind. The abundant rainfall and relatively cool climate are ideal for grape development. The soils are marls and clay loams, rich in calcium, which are ideal for producing rich-bodied wines.
