They are from the company Tsantali produced and partly in bock bag-like Bottles marketed that exclusively leased vineyards from the St. Panteleimon monastery in the monastery-owned domain “Metochi Chromitsa”. Tsantali also produces other country wines from this mountain under other brand names, which are bottled in normal bottles. Agioritikos wines are also available from other producers, since there are other monasteries on Mount Athos. These are, for example, wines from the Monoxilitis Monastery, which are then bottled and marketed by the Protopapas company, as well as the winery Mylopotamos of the Megisti Lavra monastery.
