Monemvasia Winery

Monemvasia Winery was founded in 1997 in the area that bares the same name. There is where its sweet white wine, the Malvasia wine (Malvasia=Monemvasia in Frankish), became the most famous wine almost globally in the late Middle Ages (12th century) and for almost five centuries. Monemvasia Winery starred in a long process for international recognition of the Protected Designation of Origin for this wine in modern times, as of Greek origin, objective that was achieved. Starting 2009 the wine PDO Monemvasia-Malvasia is a fact (the first PDO Monemvasia-Malvasia wine by Monemvasia Winery was bottled in 2013).

The privately-owned vineyard of the winery, around 30 hectares, is planted with native varieties, in an area with an interesting topography, soil and subsoil diversity, a lot of winds and a neighboring sea. These are factors that benefit the grapes used by Monemvasia Winery for the production of wines as stated by the many international awards and distinctions won till today.

Estate Theodorakakos

In a traditionally viticultural since the middle ages area, in the heart of Laconia, you can find the vineyards and winery of the Theodorakakos family. Our aim is to promote the local and up-and-coming varieties Kydonitsa and Mavroudi. The, also local Monemvasia, the cosmopolitan Assyrtiko, the robust Roditis and the vigorous Agiorgitiko complete the 20 hectares of privately owned vineyards. The chosen low output of 8000 Kgr per Hectare contributes towards our priority, the highest possible quality of the grapes. After all, the best wines start with the best grapes.

All the grapes vinified at the estate come from our own vineyard and are characterized as P.G.I. – Protected Geographical Identity, certifying their origin.
