Peloponnese

Peloponnese is a large ancient wine-growing region located in the southern-most tip in the Balkan Peninsula of Greece. The region flourishing wine culture already existed here in ancient times with its important port city of Monemvasia, which was a famous transhipment location for sweet dessert wines to the rest of Europe in the Middle Ages. The region produces around 1/4 of the wines in Greece with vast types of microclimates and various topography, which results in a large and diverse style of wines from light, crisp and mineral whites, powerful and age-worthy reds to lusciously sweet dessert wines. The region is famous for its native Moschofilero, Agiorgitiko, Roditis and Assyrtiko grapes together with the international Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscat and Chardonnay. The climate can be described as Mediterranean with hot days followed by colder nights, extending the ripening period and leading to a balance of flavour and acidity in the grapes. Most of the vineyards of the Peloponnese are concentrated on the mountainous and semi-mountainous areas with an average altitude of 500 meters. There are three main wine-growing areas including Patra known for its sweet wines from Muscat, Nemea with notable for the noble Agiorgitiko and Moschofilero and Mantinia well-known for the unique international grapes expressions. The region is a great way to be introduced to the Greek wine appreciated all over the world.
