Babatzim Tsipouro & Ouzo
Anestis Babatzimopoulos is the Greek wine industry's most charismatic figure. Handsome, articulate and a natural storyteller, he is also a patriotic spokesman for the viability of world class wine production in Greece. His extraordinary artisanal ouzo, tsipouro, brandy and mono-varietal apostagma (grappa) compete with any in the world. With a new focus on winemaking and a fantastic new winery among his vineyards in Ossa, Babatzimopoulos is continuing the family tradition. Perched on a south-facing slope at significant altitude (600 meters), the spacious winery will have a separate distillery employing the company's original stills and room to host what will ultimately become a living museum of the area's rich cultural and artistic traditions.
