The Lipsi Winery vineyards collectively cover an area of around four and a half hectares where we grow the varieties Fokiano, Assyrtiko, Athiri, Mandilaria and Syrah.  

Fokiano is one of the oldest indigenous varieties of the Aegean, it owes its name to the ancient town of Phocaea in Asia Minor and according to tradition was a gift to the islands, from the god Dionysus.  It has been used for generations on Lipsi for the production of sweet wine and we make 'Aposperitis', our signature wine, in the traditional manner,  from fully ripe grapes, picked and left to dry for several days in the sun to acquire optimal colour and flavour.  

Our vision is to revive Fokiano and we now produce a dry rosé and a unique Blanc de Noir from this rare variety.
