Peloponnese

The historic vineyard of Peloponnese, has as a boundary in the north the vineyards in Nemea. There Fliasios wine was produced in antiquity, in the ancient vineyards located around the sanctuary of Zeus. The name of Nemea became famous in the last century, through the production of dark wines from Agiorgitiko grape variety. Further west, in Achaia and in Kalavryta, there are also vineyards of historical importance. The port of Patras, has been a key factor in the development of Greek wine in the 19th century, as it was the export gateway for the regional wines from Mavrodaphne and for currants. In the center of the Peloponnese, in Mantinea, viticulture starts from antiquity, which is known through reports of Aristotle and Theophrastus on the fine wines of Arcadia. Also, in Mantinea, for the first time in Greece we have the production of sparkling wine from the variety Moschofilero. Heading south and east of the Peloponnese, we find the historical area of Monemvasia, with the similarly named white variety Monemvasia, and one of the most famous wines in the world history of wine, the Malvasia wine.
