ITS FACILITIES

The production facilities of Retsina

 

Bottling plant

We wanted to offer bottled Malamatina everywhere. In 1957, we were the first who achieved it. Then, we transported the bottling plant to Kalohori, Thessaloniki, where it is still located today, in order to meet the demand.

In 1994 we modernized the machinery and the bottling line was fully automated, acquiring the ability to bottle 40,000 bottles per hour in the most modern and safe way.


With the addition of 3 stainless steel tanks, the storage capacity reached 1,500 tons of retsina for bottling, which is transported with its own fleet of ultra-modern tankers from the company's wineries.

Today, the Malamatina bottling plant is one of the largest in Europe!

 

Wineries

For the production of our retsina, we always follow a strict procedure! The production center of Malamatina is located in Boeotia. In recent years, through much care and considerable investment, we have modernized our wineries, guaranteeing unsurpassed quality in Retsina Malamatina.
