In 1993, George Gioulis, who is both an agronomist and oenologist that studied at the University of Bordeaux, founded the winery Domaine Gioulis and planted his first vineyard in his place of origin, Klimenti. This vineyard was one of the first certified organic vineyards in Greece. George wanted to find the right relationships between the territory, the climate, the vineyard and while preserving the cultural heritage of winemaking in Greece.
Nowadays, his children, Dimitris and Ermioni, who have studied in enology and within the trade of wines respectively, continue the route of the estate along with their father. The aim of the family estate is the production of quality wines, highlighting the best features of the mountainous Klimenti region. Over the years, Domaine Gioulis has expanded its vineyards. They consist of 60 acres/8ha, planted in three locations close to the winery, all at elevation on slide slopes from 800 to 1000 meters of altitude.
The village of Klimenti, where the winery and the vineyards are located, is built on the green slopes of Mount Ziria in northern Peloponnese at an altitude of 750 meters and at a distance of 42 kilometers from Korinthos city. It is one of the oldest villages of Korinth department, dating back to 1400 AD. Klimenti adjoins the mountainous vineyards of the Protected Designation of Origin, Nemea, while in 1994 was recognized by the Ministry of Agriculture, as a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) Klimenti.
