Ktima Tselepos was founded in 1989 by the active oenologist Yiannis Tselepos, who after working on the Arcadian vineyard for a decade, chose to establish his winery on the eastern slopes of Mount Parnonas. Ktima Tselepos has vineyards at an altitude of 750m. in the plateau of Mantinia where, except from Moschofilero, the grape of the wine PDO Mantinia, international grape varieties are cultivated.
There are two more wineries associated with Ktima Tselepos. One, KtimaDriopi, in Koutsi, Nemea (Corinthia Wine Roads) has a privately-owned vineyard of 8.5 hectares at an altitude of 380 m. and the other is in Santorini (Canava Chryssou, in cooperation with the homonymous family, with a privately-owned vineyard of almost 12 hectares).
