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.

Why it’s worth visiting Because the people of Monemvasia Winery are not only very hospitable but also very dedicated to the vineyard and wine with their greatest pride being their PDO Monemvasia-Malvasia wine. It is probably the ideal destination for a wine tourist who wants to travel back in time, having as a guide the most historical wine ever made… Malvasia wine. But also because Monemvasia Winery is at a privileged spot, near the wonderful castle that bares the same name and other natural and not only sights of the land of Laconia.
