The Lafazanis Winery was built in 1993 by Oenologist Spyros Lafazanis in the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) area Nemea and specifically in the village of Ancient Cleones. The winemaker, utilizing Agiorgitiko as well as many other varieties, domestic and international, created luscious and tasteful wines, reflecting the company’s excellent know-how and the potential of the region.

The technical facilities of the winery are structured to combine modern technology with traditional techniques and environmental consciousness.
