Mountainous Arcadia, Peloponnese
Organic - Moschofilero, Roditis, Agiorgitiko, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot
Since 1860, the Spiropoulos family has had a strong connection with the grapevine and wine. The family's vineyards are located in the center of the Peloponnese, at 850 meters of altitude in Ancient Mantinia and Ancient Nemea. The winery's heart is the stone, characteristic Arcadian tower that dominates the modern structure.
Spiropoulos winery was established 34 years ago and was a pioneer in Greece's wine revolution. It was regarded as a pioneer on several "battlefronts" because it was one of the first to be deeply involved with organic farming and supplied rose and sparkling wine made with the Charmat method from the Moshofilero variety.
Despite the fact that the Spiropoulos brand is well recognized as a high-quality wine, the winery has not kept up with the hectic pace of Greek wine innovation for many years. However, the transition from Nonda Spiropoulo to his daughter Konstantina provides a new impetus to the old winery with the introduction of new, modern labels.
The dominant color is black, and the black and white pictures reflect the history and identity of the two vineyards. The Estate Spiropoulos wine collection is undeniably impressive.
