Foundi’s winemaking history begins in 1930 when the first vines of Xinomavro were planted in the area of Strantza where the winery is located. Nikos Foundi is the father figure who during the 70’s grew the estate’s vineyard holdings. In 1992 he managed to build a small – scale traditional winery. With continuous hard work and more importantly with tremendous respect to the terroir and focusing only on quality Foundi winery soon found a prominent place in the top league of Naoussa producers.
The estate produces a number of different varieties and styles but the most highly praized of them is of course Xinomavro. In Strantza the soils are lighter than the rest of the region. This, in addition to the winemaking style produces one of the most elegant and at the same time powerful Xinomavro wines. Pure red fruit character, black olives, dried tomato, silky but pronounced level of tannins and high acidity with great aging potential evolving with time to a wine of great complexity and undoubtedly world class quality.
