Our nursery was founded in 1979 in Thebes by Aggelos Meletios in collaboration with French houses on a 450 acre plot. Nicolaos Meletius joined a few years later, fueling the expansion of our company.
Material for our antiphylloxeric compound is sourced from parent plantations far away from our vineyards and is independently certified by KEPPYEL for the production of reproductive material.
After vaccination, the grafts pass through a series of procedures, such as parrafinisation, to prepare them for grafting.
Welding is performed in a chamber that is designed and shaped specifically to maintain constant levels of temperature and humidity, thus optimizing vaccine performance.
After successful vaccination, the grafts are planted and grown on our own grounds for one year, to promote the development of a complete root system.
The cultivated grafts are regularly checked by our agronomist to ensure their proper and healthy development.
After a year of systematic and meticulous cultivation, the grafts are ready for grubbing.
Hand-selected grafts are packed for shipping and are now ready for you to create your own vineyard.
Grafts are stored in our own refrigeration chambers, capable of simultaneously maintaining 1,500,000 plants at optimized temperature and humidity levels.
The grafted rootstocks are transported to their place of planting in specially designed cartons and come with straight-forward instructions for maintenance and planting.
We work with French and Spanish vine institutes who certify our grafts for proper maintenance.
we have been working on that since 1979
