In 1985, Thomas Ligas began to study the local ecosystems, experimenting with viticulture and vinification, and seeking to accentuate the distinctive qualities of his terroir. Thomas, Meli and Jason, father and children, work side by side to safeguard the health and maturity of their grapes, seeking an ideal balance between quality and quantity. This natural approach to viticulture preserves the original characteristics of the grape, as determined by the vineyard. They
only grow indigenous Greek varieties, some from the south like Assyrtiko, others nearly forgotten, like Kydonitsa and Limniona. The first performance of the Euripides tragedy Bacchae took place in the Theatre of Dionysus, in Pella, in around 408BC. Bacchus (or Dionysus) was the ancient god of wine and joy, and so it’s fitting that Ktima Ligas is using the ancient techniques of this wine-producing region to bring both wine and joy to its customers today.
