The purpose of “Terra Thiva” is to showcase the unique characteristics of the land of Thiva, Central Greece, through the production of high-quality products “from their land”.
It is the combined effort of Panos and Sotiria Katrisiosis, based at a privately owned farm of 50 hectares, in Vagia – Thiva, in Central Greece.
In their 20 – hectare vineyards they grow both indigenous and international varieties such as Mouchtaro, Malagousia, Savatiano, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. The unique terroir of their region, together with meticulous farming, secure each year perfectly ripe grapes of the highest quality.

Concurrently, their premium and ultra – premium wines, with several awards in international competitions, exhibit their philosophy, their efforts and also the “character” and “soul” of their region.
