We take care of the earth and return what we get from nature


The wine industry has taken a leading role in green business practices. At Argyriou Winery we apply high production standards aiming at the highest results, with the natural environment as a key priority, actively participating in a series of important programs that shape the future for the wine industry.


  • CONTROLLED IRRIGATION: In 70% of the vineyard we use a controlled irrigation system (with pipes) which reduces unnecessary water consumption.


  • CULTIVATION: Every autumn we cultivate rows of vineyards with covered crops such as milling, oats and vetch, providing protection against soil erosion and the introduction of "green manure" for soil health.

  • COMPOSITION: Each harvest we compress all the old vines and other plant materials. They are ground to spread in the vineyards to maintain the health of the soil and the vines.


  • WINE BOXES: Made of Kraft cardboard (natural coffee) to ensure an environmentally friendly and recyclable medium. Kraft cardboard is chlorine free and has a higher percentage of recycled paper inside the cardboard.

  • LABELS: The inks used for labels and cartons are water based and non-solvent based.

  • BOTTLES: The glass used for Argyrio wines is lightweight, using lighter glass that reduces carbon emissions from the transport of light boxes. All bottles use up to 55% recycled glass.

  • CAPSULES AND CORKS: Natural cork is biodegradable and renewable. Tin capsules, used for all winery wines, are recyclable.


  • RECYCLING: We recycle paper, boxes and bottles. Packaging supplies for bottling come in fully recyclable containers, including shrinkage, cardboard and plastic. Even the plastic coating on labels is recycled.

  • ENERGY USE: Lighting has been updated to reduce energy use. Cooling systems in production have been upgraded to high energy efficiency systems, reducing energy consumption by 20%.

  • WATER SAVINGS: We encourage employees' water-saving practices, continue to monitor water use and look for innovative ways to implement other water-saving practices.
