The vineyards of Aigialeia, which bear fruit in a unique soil and climate, cover hundreds of hectares, forming one of Greece's largest and most vibrant vinicultural zones.


The pioneering gravity-flow Rouvalis winery in the heart of Aigialeia has been making wine since 1990. Altitude, rocky outcrops, small carefully selected parcels of land, and terraced vineyards looking out over the Corinthian Gulf form an ideal location for “heroic viticulture”.

The majority of the winery's vines are located at an elevation of 840 m., with many smaller allotments scattered around at elevations of up to 1100 m. The mountainous terrain is perfect for cultivating the indigenous reddish-skinned Roditis and Tsigello (Mavrodaphne). The winery's viticultural profile includes a variety of other Greek and international varieties such as, Assyrtiko, Lagorthi, Malvasia, Viognier, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, as well as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. 


As Angelos Rouvalis’ successors, Theodora Rouvalis and Antonio Ruiz Pañego have brought their dedication, skill and wide-ranging knowledge to the winery and create wines with personality that express the distinctive and unique terroir of Aigialeia, one of the world’s most interesting viticultural zones.

Meet Rouvalis  

‘Heroic viticulture’, in one of the most interesting wine-growing zones in the world, Aigialeia.


Theodora Rouvalis talks about the winery and Roditis, which is the main grape variety of the winery, present in the region for the last 2.000 years.

The Roditis vines welcome the year's snow at 850m altitude in the Koutsoura location as a valuable legacy for the coming growing season.
