The wider region of Hadrian is morphologically very homogenous. The exposure of the vineyard is northwest and the climate is semi-continental i.e. it is between the Mediterranean and the continental climate. The winters are quite cold, while the summers are warm. In winter there are several rains that supply the vines with the necessary moisture. During the summer season, day and night temperature fluctuations are observed, a phenomenon that helps the beneficially slow ripening of the grapes.
Viticulture is carried out with the personal care of Stavros Manolesakis and the advice of the partner agronomist of the estate, who carry out continuous experiments with Greek and foreign varieties with the aim of establishing their adaptation to the region as well as their wine potential.
