How could we sum up the 70-year-history of a wine-making family in a few words? Where should we start?

It would take an entire book, maybe a novel, to tell you about one centuries of characters, events, tales, evolution, bright days and hardships. We have been winemakers from father to son since 1902, in the same old village, nestled in Peloponnese; Nemea.

Our first winery operated in 2002 in Nemea, in the place that has been designated Designation of Origin for one of the most important red varieties, Agiorgitiko.

 In 2016, the new winery was inaugurated at the entrance of Nemea, one of the most modern and advanced wineries in the area. The Winery is located shortly after the entrance of Nemea on your right hand side just opposite the Virgin of the Rocks of Nemea.

The old monastery of the Assumption of Virgin Mary or otherwise ‘Panagia tou Vrachou’ is located on the imposing rock, ‘Mount Polyphego’. A stone staircase, with a few dozen steps, leads to the monastery and the temple that “nests” in a small cave. Internal stairs lead to the various parts of the monastery. From the balcony of the Temple, the view is extremely amazing.

In the basement of the Winery is the cellar where the wines are aged in French oak barrels. Our Winery produces about 200,000 liters of wine a year, and bottles more that 50% of its production. It can accommodate up to 500 people outdoors, while indoors 150.

The space can be given for various events by arrangement.
