The Thymiopoulos vineyards are situated on Trilofos, the southern tip of the appellation of Naoussa, in the Northern part of Greece.
The Thymiopoulos family has been growing vines for several generations. Stergios Thymiopoulos was the first one who got involved commercially by selling grapes to local wineries for many years.
He was very serious in his approach and participated in research programs of the Vine and Wine Institute. When, the old son of Thymiopoulos family, Apostolos, finished school, the idea was born that the family should make its own wine and towards that end he decided to study Oenology at the Technological Educational Institute of Athens. It was during the time of his studies that they started planting new Xinomavro vines in their family vineyards, and did in-depth research on issues related to the growing of this grape variety, such as suitability of rootstocks, planting density, canopy height and a variety of other factors that impact the quality of the grapes. After he finished his studies in 2003, he made wine for the first time. It was bottled and released on the market in 2005 under the label GHI KAI URANOS, which means Earth and Sky.
The Thymiopoulos vineyards are planed by only one red variety names Xinomavro. This variety is characteristic for its polyphenolic dynamic as well as for the possibility to give red wines of deep maturation.
Today, the Thymiopoulos vineyards produce 3 labels of wine.: Jeunes vignes de Xinomavro, Rose de Xinomavro, and Ghi ke Uranos- Earth and Sky. The exports of Thymiopoulos vineyards are the 80% of total production. The Ghi ke Uranos (Earth and Sky),in the USA market , circulate as URANOS.
