Patoinos is a small agroecological farm & winery situated in the beautiful Island of Patmos in the South Aegean. The farm cultivates organically and follows biodynamic principles, producing high quality and low intervention wines and olive oil as well as small quantities of artisanal soaps, herbal infused oils, dried herbs and marmelades. In the farm one can find 2 hectares of vineyards planted with the varieties Asyrtiko (white) and Mavrothiriko (red), one more hectar of olive groves and several other trees that thrive in the mediterenean climate like lemons, figs, mulberries, oaks, cypresses, caroubs, as well as a small Slow Food Garden of local biodiversity and a variety of medicinal herbs. The small agroecological eco system is completed by a few small beehives and the free range chicken that live free all around the farm 9 months per year, helping actively as natural fertilizers and pesticides.
The goal of Patoinos is to brign back viticulture and wine production in an Island that used to be well known for its wine many decades ago, but has long forgotten it, within an agroecological context. In 2011, and with the determination and inspiration of Josef Zisiadis –a greek-swiss man and regular visitor of Patmos for many years- , and the support of a group of Swiss oenologists, the first vineyards were planted in the farm. In 2016 the first vintage became reality and ever since the farm produces 3 labels (White Asyrtiko, Red Mavrothiriko and Asirtiko Orange). Hopefully in the future this little initiative will serve as an inspiration for many more to go back to their land and revive the agricultural tradition of the Island, putting back Patmos on the map as a wine (and not only) producing land.
The farm and the old patitiri (old stomping area) are visitable during summer months, followed by a wine tasting exprience.
