Since then, this has become a tradition passing from father to son and from one generation to the next. Grandfather Apostolos added the art of vinification to that of the cultivation and he fermented the family's wine in tanks at the basement of hishouse. Apostolo's father, Nicholaos, re-planted part of the farm and passed on his son the love for Nature and vin-fruit, grapes.
The first vinification by Apostolos occured in 1994. He produced 3652 bottles while four years later he had his first worldwide success. Avantis Dryos became the first Greek wine to have ever been registrated in theGuinness Book of Records (edition 1998). That was because of Apostolos 's brother Spiros, an architect, made 1500 different drawings for thelabels of equivalent number of bottles.
