Winery, Vineyards & Varieties
We own 8 ha of vines on two sites, one in Corinth around our winery and the other in Mycenae, near the famous archaeological site and birthplace of Greek viticulture almost 4,000 years ago. Both vineyards are cultivated strictly organic because we are convinced that only naturally grown vines can produce healthy grapes that are the base of our quality wines. Another shared aspect is the influence of the sea to the microclimate. The cooling winds together with the Mediterranean sun and the soil provide the best conditions for our indigenous and selected international grape varieties.
Greece has a rich heritage of indigenous grape varieties. To honour this heritage, and because of the strong characteristics and local attachment, we have planted three Greek varieties. The unique Roditis, Agiorgitiko, an ancient variety exclusive to Nemea and the re-discovered Malagouzia. In addition, we work with the international varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Viognier, selected from the best clones direct from French nurseries.
Our philosophy is to unite tradition and new technology. That is why we cultivate organic and harvest and prune carefully by hand. In the winery, we use modern steel tanks, state of the art machines and French oak barrels from selected manufacturers.
