RIRA Vineyards (the name is the area’s old name) are around 25 hectares, are situated on the slopes of Aigialia and have a view of the Corinthian Golf. They involve 15 grape varieties, international and native which Panagiotis Tsitsas, their owner, as a well-travelled wine lover chose to establish in his homeland and truly authentic Greek vineyard (2007).
The beauty here takes your breath away, as the vineyards cover the whole top of their hill. The goal of the owner is a mutual goal for everyone in RIRA Vineyards: the utilization of the grapes for the production of wines which express their region, having the best possible quality price ratio at the same time.

Why it’s worth visiting Because RIRA Vineyards have made the building’s ruins into a shelter- “nest” (eagle’s nest) at the top of the vineyards where the visitor can try wine and see old raisin warehouses as well. Because RIRA Vineyards are perfect for nature lovers and wine lovers. The vineyards are surrounded by olive, walnut, almond, cherry, quince, fig and pomegranate trees, capers and thyme bushes but also asparaguses, bulbs etc. while above them fly 8 hawks (hence the winery’s logo), blackbirds, nightingales, partridges and hares, badgers, little foxes and kittens walking around.
Open days & hours RIRA Vineyards are open to visitors all year round, except Saturday and Sunday, 08:00-16:00, upon request (upon request a visit during the weekend can be arranged).
