We also insist and develop specific quality controls of the final products. We support the wineries not only with reliable stoppers to bottle, but, also, with any information and advice on the bottling process.
In year 2004 the company is very well organized concerning machinery and know – how and sells to an extended market of wineries all over Greece.
